Abstract:[Numerals in Romanian place names]
As they are less frequent in use, toponymic structures containing numerals have not been granted very much space in scientific studies until now. This paper investigates them starting from examples collected from maps, documents or field surveys and underlines their versatility in the naming process. The study notes the occurrence in popular and official naming systems of the high frequency of cardinal numerals (generally doi ‘two’ and trei ‘three’) and their adjectival value (Şapte Movile ‘seven mounds’). The research also points out what kinds of objects are designated by such place names and what the numerals indicate. These names are not very stable constructions: several variants are recorded in local language use, while some of the official names have an artificial look, nonspecific to familiar, spontaneous place names. In the Moldavian region, there are toponyms which indicate the size of the land. Locals cannot be called by means of the village name, but by means of nicknames or ethnonyms.
Key words:numerals, place names, popular vs. official, artificial vs. natural
