Synopsis

An introduction and research guide to the study of names, or onomastics, this book covers a wealth of topics comprising the major areas of name study--personal names (anthroponyms), place names (toponyms), acronyms, and brand and trade names--and numerous special areas, such as designations for athletic teams, musical groups, and tropical storms, animal names, code names, and scientific nomenclature. In each case a discussion of underlying linguistic principles is illustrated by numerous fascinating examples. Additional features of the book include a glossary of terms, information on organizations and journals in the field, and a bibliography.
