Abstract:This paper focuses on the Italic city names found in Dictiones latinae cum valachica interpretatione, one of the oldest Romanian dictionaries written by Teodor Corbea, a scholar who lived in Transylvania at the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century.
The large number of Italic urban toponyms caught our attention and compelled us to carry out a linguistic analysis of how Teodor Corbea created the dictionary entries by translating town names from Latin into Romanian. Throughout the dictionary, we also noticed the author’s desire to share his vast knowledge, typical of European encyclopaedism, with his readers.
The inclusion of place name particularities in the dictionary helps us to better understand the endeavour of this Transylvanian writer as well as his broad cultural horizon and extensive linguistic knowledge.
