Toponyms with Repetition of a Word-Formation Element as Rudiments of Ancient Thinking
The article deals with toponyms with the repetition of a word-formation element. Etymological analysis allows us to establish the repetition of a syllable, a root morpheme, a word in aboriginal and standardized toponyms. The main classification word-formation models based on the properties of the toponymic material are determined. Attention is focused on the basic structure of appellatives, which were a reflection of ancient thinking and the basis for the emergence of onyms in the process of nominating natural objects. The geography of the given examples covers different continents.
