Typological onomastics / Типологічна ономастика

Five volumes of the "Typological onomastics" has been scheduled and two of them already published in Odessa by the best Ukrainian onomatologists!

1. The first book is dedicated to the "Lexic and semantic specifics of the onomastic space" (2012)

The book discusses in detail the problems of onomastic lexicology, nomination on the material of more than seventy languages. This research holds much significance for Slavic, Romance, German Studies, as well as for all linguists, scientists who deal with issues of comparative and typological linguistics.

2. The second volume concerns the "Onomastic derivation from the typological perspective" (2013).

Besides the investigation of the traditional derivational and structural organisation of the toponyms, the second volume devotes much attention to the creative onomastic derivations: types of reversions, inversions, blending name-formation, onomastic substantivisation, etc.

I can't wait for the next 3 volumes))).
