Abstract:Grammatical conversion with proper names in Romanian. The conversion of an appellative into a proper name, without formal modifications, can be presented, metaphorically, as a “parasitation” of the common name by the proper name, at the beginning into a “polysemantism” sui generis, as a “semantic extension”, in which the signification is doubled by a designation. In the operation of conversion, the passage to a new part of speech is morphologically marked by the selection of the flexional marks pertaining to the class that has been joined, and syntactically by the occurrence in the contexts specific of the new class, contexts in which functions specific of this new class are secured. In the present paper we shall present some aspects of conversion with proper names: proper names become common names, common names become proper names, feminine names become masculine names and, the other way round, masculine names become feminine names through proprialization or deonomastics.
Key words:conversion, proprialization, proper name, common name, deonomastics, antonomasia
