ONOMASTIC STEREOTYPES AND CONTEMPORARY LANGUAGE AWARENESS
Languages of publication
The paper discusses problems of the notion of an onomastic stereotype in the context of current linguistic knowledge of the speakers of Polish. The problem has not been recognized in onomastic literature so far, and it belongs to the field of research of so called cultural onomastics. Basing on the results of the questionnaire research carried out among the Polish Philology Faculty students of the Kazimerz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz in the years 2005 and 2006, general conclusions concerning contemporary language awareness of the origin, structure and function of surnames have been drawn. The paper also answers the question about onomastic stereotypes which concern the current way in which Poles perceive surnames.
