The contribution focuses on the use and collocation analysis of basic notions linked to the field of onomastics, including those that are specialized (e.g., “proprium”, “anthroponym”, “toponym”, “chrematonym”, etc.) and the ones that are commonly used (e.g., “proper name/naming”). In the latter case, attention will be paid to whether these terms ar...
Article
The paper explores how the topic of German place names (toponyms) was viewed in Czech opinion journalism in 1945 and 1946. At that time, during the removal (expulsion) of German-speakers from Czechoslovakia, the “degermanization” process (also sometimes referred to as “rebohemization”) culminated. In connection with these events, German place names...

The text focuses on German forms of place names in the Czech Republic, especially their revitalisation, restoration and preservation after 1989. Unlike during the interwar period, there is no German minority in the Czech Lands today.

The paper focuses on German forms of place names in Czechia and Slovakia, and Hungarian forms of place names in Slovakia, especially on their revitalization and perception after 1989.

Czech authors wanted to improve the Slavic origin of the German place names, thus we can find some false interpretations in their papers. However, more atte...

In the Middle Ages the town of Jeseník (part of the Olomouc Region of the Czech Republic) was settled by Germans who became a majority of the population (thus most names were of German origin).

Conference Paper
The paper focuses on local and field names in the district of Jeseník (specifically Rejvíz, Horní Údolí and Dolní Údolí, Czech Republic). This borderland region was settled by the Germans in the Middle Ages. That´s why the most of the names were of German origin and older Slavic names were germanized. After the expulsion of Germans in 1945/1946 thi...
