Universal property of urbanonymical categorization


It is proved that at the modern stage of onomastics researches there are lack of integrative researches of generalized nature, necessity of systematization and supplement of the received results in the modern onomastics from cognitive points of view, which draw the attention, first of all, to urbanonymical lexicon in the knowledge representation; in 2016 the first chrestomathy on cognitive onomastics was published, it includes articles by scholars from Austria, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Finland for 2004–2014 and give grounds for the cognitive direction in proper names research. It is proved that urbanonyms research in the cognitive context allows reflecting on the subject of cognitive onomastics and whether it can help to answer many questions in the field of human cognition of surrounded names of linear interurban objects. It is revealed that addressing the urbanonyms naming issues in the cognitive aspect are determined by two main reasons. Firstly, it is insufficient coverage of studies of the cognitive element of onomastics, which is able to borrow ideas of cognitive linguistics and generate its own cognitive theories. Secondly, it is significance of proved scientific data about cognitive dependence of the choice, invention, and the use of proper names on the city territory for modern society.
