Description:

The volume represents a work that aims at a linguistic research of the toponymy existing within the boundaries of Tulcea county. The main objective of this volume is to carry out a lexical-semantic and derivational study, but also a historical-etymological one of the Tulconian toponymy. Within this study are examined categories of topical names such as macrotoponyms (names of rivers, rivers, localities), but also microtoponyms (names of brooks, valleys, valcele, hills, mounds, agricultural lands, etc.). As principles of approach to the problems of toponymy, the synchronic criterion (static, horizontal in time), but also diachronic (historical, vertical in time) are mentioned. (The author)
