Transferred Names and Analogy in Name-formation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Names are a linguistic universal. All known languages make use of names—most commonly, but not exclusively, to identify individual people and places. This volume provides an up-to-date account of the state of the art in different areas of name studies, otherwise known as ‘onomastics’. The main focus throughout is on general principles and methodologies, and although all contributions are written in English, they encompass a wide range of languages and cultures across the world. The volume is divided into seven parts, dealing with the main branches of name studies in roughly chronological order
