Odwołania do świata zwierząt w bułgarskich nazwach roślin zielnych
MetadataShow full item record
The names of herbaceous plants belong to the oldest layer of vocabulary in Slavic languages, so many studies have been conducted so far. In addition to the official and scientific nomenclature, there is also a rich folk terminology regarding herbaceous plants. The subject of consideration are just such names, rooted in the language and created by the Bulgarian language users themselves, and especially the part of them which somehow refers to the broadly understood world of animals. The analysis will be limited to the names of herbaceous plants found in Bulgaria. This limitation is dictated by the certainty that we are dealing with a native name, not a borrowing from another language, and the role of these plants in the folk culture. From this point of view both the construction and the word formation motivation are considered.
