Abstract:
  • The article deals with the problem of gender alternations in the case of two biblical toponyms, Sodom and Gomorrah, which can be frequently found in the same syntagm in the biblical text. Since toponyms do not relate to the animate/inanimate distinction, it is the phonetic aspect to mostly dictate their being included in gender categories. The cultural influences of the time as well as the language of the original text from which the translation was made have imposed non-feminine variants of these toponyms in the old Romanian language and vowel-ending variants) in modern Romanian.
  • La présente étude élucide les fluctuations du genre au cas du couple de toponymes bibliques Sodome et Gomorrhe qui, souvent, apparaissent dans le texte biblique en tant que constituants d’un seul syntagme solidement coagulé. Puisque nous savons que les toponymes ne participent point à l’universellement connue opposition entre animé et inanimé, c’est donc leur allure phonétique qui, dans la plupart des cas, décidera de leur encadrement dans la catégorie du genre. Les divers courants prédominants dans la culture de chacune des époques traversées comme aussi bien la langue d'origine de la version d’après laquelle la traduction aura été initiée ont fait que des formes toponymiques non féminines vinssent établir leur prédominance en roumain ancien et que, plus tard, en roumain moderne, les mêmes toponymes présentassent des formes vocaliques.
