Polskie choronimy i etnonimy ludowe
POLISH CHORONYMS AND FOLK ETHNONYMS
Languages of publication
The article presents choronyms and ethnonyms used in Polish dialects from the 19th to the 21st centuries. The material comes from the card-file “Dictionary of Polish Dialects” as well as the texts of folk songs. Ethnonyms are divided into masculine, feminine, juvenile, and collective. Among the masculine and feminine ethnonyms, those designating non-adults and those that are expressive are distinguished. In comparison with general Polish usage, dialect names of countries and nations are characterized by great variety. Some ancient forms are preserved in dialects, and loan words from the languages of neighboring nations also appear there.
