21st Slovak Onomastic Conference "Proper Names in the Interdisciplinary Context"

Dear colleagues!

We are pleased to invite you to the 21st Slovak Onomastic Conference titled "Proper Names in the Interdisciplinary Context" to be held in Nitra at the Constantine the Philosopher University from 10 to 12 September 2019.

The study of names is fractured by interdisciplinary and methodological divisions. Proper names may be analysed from various linguistic aspects: morphological, lexical-semantic, dialectal, sociolinguistic, etymological, stylistic, etc. Onomastics also applies knowledge of other disciplines, such as history, ethnography, geography, literary science, psychology, sociology, translatology and others. Whereas, it enriches in return their scientific results.

At the conference, we expect to welcome not only professional onomatologists, but also researchers from other leading disciplines who are confronted with issues related to the use of the proper names.

Thematic areas of the conference are:

1. Theoretical issues of onomastics (interrelationship with leading disciplines such as history, archeology, geography, law, economics, psychology, sociology, literary science, aesthetics, semiotics, translatology, etc.)

2. Analysis of specific kinds of onyms (anthroponyms, toponyms and chrematonyms of various nations and regions, literary onomastics, translations of proper names, name-based historical sources, historical onomastics, socio-onomastics, psycho-onomastics, semiotics of proper names, etc.)

3. Onomastic terminology (literary onomastics, socio-onomastics, psycho-onomastics, areal onomastics, onomastic grammar, onomastic semantics, etc.)

Applications forms will be accepted until April 30, 2019 by e-mail onomastika2019@gmail.com (contact person Barbara Repková). The conference fee must be paid by 31 May 2019.
