A LINGUISTIC IMAGE OF THE WORLD OF THE RURAL COMMUNITY SOLIDIFIED IN POSSESSIVE TERRAIN NAMES (EXEMPLIFIED BY MICROTOPONYMS OF TRUSKOLASY NEAR CZĘSTOCHOWA AND NEIGHBORING VILLAGES) The article is an attempt to reconstruct a linguistic image of the world of the rural community solidified in possessive terrain names. A collection of 110 microtoponyms was analyzed (along with their morphological justifications, indicated by respondents), which were collected from the area of Truskolasy near Częstochowa and neighboring villages. Names distinguished in the material studied were, among others, those motivated by anthroponyms, by the ethnicity and religion of the owner, and also by historical legal-proprietary relations. Designations of a possessive nature record, among other things, the need to emphasize the ownership of a physiographic object by the individual, and in addition expose the popular opposition we/they. Possessive terrain names commemorate the history of the “small fatherland,” which has particular value for members of the microcommunity studied and makes up an important component of their identity.
