The Lexis of the Bay of Kotor: The Northwestern and Southeastern Area

The Language of the Boka Bay

by Sanja Crnogorac (Author)
Monographs 244 Pages
Series: Symbolae Slavicae, Volume 38

Summary

The book examines the complex lexis of the northwestern and southeastern Bay of Kotor, Montenegro. The author analyzed loanwords which arrived by the influence of those who settled in the Bay (Venetians, Austro-Hungarians, Turks, Spaniards, and French). They were domesticated and spread to the continental part of Montenegro, a fact indicative of the level of linguistic integration. The analysis of the corpus was performed from phonological, morphological, etymological, accentual, phraseological, semantical, onomastic, lexical, and lexicographical perspectives. The principal intent is not only to present the infiltration of loanwords and changes in loans, but also of the variety of linguistic influences in the Bay, as well as to offer a dictionary of the most frequent Latinisms found in the Bay.

The Lexis of the Bay of Kotor:
The Northwestern and the Southeastern Area

The book examines the complex lexis of the northwestern and southeastern Bay of Kotor, Montenegro. The author analyzed loanwords which arrived by the influence of those who settled in the Bay (Venetians, Austro-Hungarians, Turks, Spaniards, and French). They were domesticated and spread to the continental part of Montenegro, a fact indicative of the level of linguistic integration. The analysis of the corpus was performed from phonological, morphological, etymological, accentual, phraseological, semantical, onomastic, lexical, and lexicographical perspectives. The principal intent is not only to present the infiltration of loanwords and changes in loans, but also of the variety of linguistic influences in the Bay, as well as to offer a dictionary of the most frequent Latinisms found in the Bay.
