Tradiční pomístní jména a jejich postavení v živé anoikonymii
Traditional minor place names and their position in living anoikonymy
Any anoikonymy contains both traditional names, many of which are getting out of use, and names that have originated recently (living, i.e. currently in use). The aim of this contribution is to demonstrate their mutual relationships and on this basis formulate the conditions any anoikonym must comply with in order to keep a stable position within a particular anoikonymy. The material basis of this specific research is anoikonymy in the south of Moravia (a region in the Czech Republic). The research has proved that durability of each anoikonym depends on the way the named object is used in the outside world. If an object serves as an important point for orientation or if it is an object well known to the majority of inhabitants in its surroundings, the function of its name is to serve for orientation and it remains in the living anoikonymy until the situation changes. The validity of these conclusions is of general character, being in accordance with current research of living toponymy.
