HELGA ANNA HAINDRICH, Onomastic questions on nyest.hu website // Since the 1st of June 2009, members of the general public have been able to visit a Hungarian website focusing on national and international news and events concerning Linguistic Studies. The portal classifies the current news according to their topics; thus, writings on onomastic questions can be found under the heading Proper Names. Most relevant articles deal with place names; other writings – in order of decreasing frequency – discuss personal names, names for institutions, names for animals, names for artefacts, and trade names. The portal not only shares news and knowledge, but also offers services such as a help desk for problems in translation, text ergonom- ics and Linguistics. The opportunity to comment on articles and launch forums or blogs to initiate a discourse on topical issues is also provided by the webmaster. The website, by presenting inter- esting news and topics in connection with proper names, plays a vital role in disseminating factual knowledge relating to Onomastics.
