Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article presents a discussion about the place names of village and steading communities, their semantic meaning and cultural value of intrinsic information. A group of place names related with the notion "sergėti" (guard) is analysed. For revealing their meaning, historical sources are employed and the natural environment of the villages and steadings is analysed. In parallel, the historical development of territorial communities is surveyed pointing out the complicated status of traditional territorial communities after the Soviet years (during the Soviet years, 5 600 villages and steadings were annihilated) and too slowly changing comprehension of social–territorial units by modern society. The necessity to safeguard all place names of territorial communities annihilated during the Soviet years as intangible cultural heritage is emphasised. [From the publication]
