Bihar megyei víz- és településnevek lexikai kapcsolata
Correlations between river and locality names of the old Bihar comitat The essay presents the factors that influence the name forms shaping of rivers and settlements as well as their interaction in name setting. My goal is to present the connections between the names of certain settlements and rivers of Bihar comitat, based on HOFFMANN ISTVAN’s lexical-morphogical analysis model. The study list contains close to 166 settlement names that bear relation to river names. These not only include geographical names (water, creek) but also other, various category, common names (bridge). I study and explain the word structure of settlement names in relation to the occurrence frequency of river name prefixes, location and popular name parts showing their various semantics. Surveying Bihar comitat’s abounding list of settlement and river names shows clearly the capacity of naming community to produce diverse geographical, settlement and river names based on existing fundamentals.
