Summary / Abstract:

ENThe paper analyses nicknames that were recorded in Veliuona vicinity during the project of the Institute of the Lithuanian Language Modern Research of Geolinguistics in Lithuania: Optimisation of Network of Points and Interactive Spread of Dialectal Information. The paper aims at identifying the characteristic attributes of nickname structure. The paper invokes structural analysis of nicknames to find universal criteria that would enable the distinction of nicknames into primary and secondary. Structural analysis discloses the structure of proper and common words that are usually selected for nickname creation. Having analysed the nicknames structurally, suffixal, inflectional, mixed structure, compound, composite and phrasal nicknames were distinguished. It was determined that suffixes and inflections are mostly used for nickname creation. [From the publication]
