Onomatology of Bohemia and Moravia in the Polish Sources from the 12th-18th Centuries
The choronyms Bohemia and Morava (nowadays Moravia) and their Polish equivalents of the Bohemian names of fortified strongholds and later towns - occurring in the Latin sources in Poland and in the Polish sources until the end of the 18th c. - have been discussed upon the historical and cultural background. In the paper, main focus is placed on the phonetic and morphological processes, which the names of the Bohemian towns underwent as a result of their adaptation to the Polish language; special attention was given to the acquisition to the Polish language of the Bohemian names in their Germanised form (e.g. Brunna, Bryn, Brinn, in German Brün - 'Brno'; Leitomeritz, Leutmeritz, Leitmeritz, in German. Leitmeritz - 'Litomerice').
