Wenzel, Walter. The Slav Landscape Name Schollene and its Cognates in Place Names.


Lětopis Abstract 2016 2: Wenzel, Walter. The Slav Landscape Name Schollene and its Cognates in Place Names.

It has been established in many instances that there is a large degree of correspondence with regard to the origin, formation and meaning of landscape and tribal names on the one hand, and place names on the other. This also applies to the landscape name, Schollene, discussed here, as well as to a number of identical or similar sounding place names. It was deduced that the term *Skolěne was the original form for the landscape name, as well as for the settlement name Schollene, formed in the same way and situated north east of Magdeburg near the Havel. This form probably also provides the basis for the place name Scholen, south of Magdeburg, as well as Schkölen, south west of Leipzig, while Schkölen, north east of Jena, can be seen as coming from *Skoľane. An old locative plural, ending in -as, coming from *Skoľane, is hidden beneath Scholas, north east of Plauen, possibly also beneath Scholitz, north east of Leipzig, as well as Scholis, south east of Wittenberg. The landscape name Schollene is further reproduced by the migration of the Old West Sorbs down the Elbe right up into the north, into what later became the Polabian language area.
