Schuster-ewc, Heinz: The Place Names of Lusatia Notes on the Present State of Research


Lětopis Abstract 2008 2: Schuster-ewc, Heinz: The Place Names of Lusatia Notes on the Present State of Research

The complete source material from scientific analyses of place names is now available thanks to the intensive research into place names conducted in Leipzig and Berlin since the 1950s. The Sorb, Ernst Mucke-Muka, had already created important premises for their interpretation. In 1973 the popular science work of Jan Meschgang, The Place Names of Upper Lusatia, appeared after his death, and was followed in 1975 by The Place Names of Lower Lusatia by Ernst Eichler, which had similar goals, and in 1993 by The Place Name Book of Lower Lusatia by Siegfried Krner. Building on the above works Walter Wenzel followed with two further publications: The Lower Lusatian Book of Place Names (2006) and The Upper Lusatian Book of Place Names (2008). This present piece undertakes above all a critical analysis of the two last publications and suggests a number of its own different interpretations of names.
