Selected functions of proper names in The Hussite Trilogy by Andrzej Sapkowski
Languages of publication
The Hussite Trilogy by Andrzej Sapkowski, comprising the volumes: Narrenturm, Warriors of God and Lux perpetua, is a novel cycle unusually rich in proper names. Nomina propria are a significant element of the linguistic aspect of each literary work, as they obtain extra functions in the text, becoming carriers of artistic values. The article focuses on the most important roles proper names play in The Hussite Trilogy. The author discusses first of all the functions distinguished by Aleksander Wilkoń: locational (based on time and space), sociological, content-based, allusive and expressive, and the comical function introduced into the research on literary onomastics by Maciej Szelewski.
