Abstract

Comparing slang toponyms with other toponyms we may note that they have a special role in the toponymic system of a language: their status is observable both in pragmatic and linguistic conditions of name giving. The article proves these statements by analysing the (colloquial and) slang name variants of the Hungarian settlement called Hajdúszoboszló. One of the most important features is that during slang name giving the denotatum already has a name and the motivation is to give a different name from the already existing one. The large scale of complexity in generating and functioning of these toponyms are also characteristics: they are supported by their relationship to the stock of toponyms in the mother tongue and in the foreign language, as well as to the stock of common words in the mother tongue and in the foreign language.
