Preface

This book is being published as the first volume of the series Onomastica Uralica (OU). By launching the series, the founders were aiming at creating a forum of publication for the onomastic researchers of the Uralian languages, hoping that it can give an impulse to this research area and it can also serve as a basis for the widening of scientific co-operation and for the realization of common research programs.

In the first volumes of the series, we intend to present the actual situation and the results attained up to now in the onomastic research of the Uralian languages. This intention may justify our compilation of a selected onomastic bibliography of the Uralian languages. Such a bibliography has not ever been published, neither for all the Uralian languages, nor for one particular language so our publication supplies a serious need. In certain cases, we could rely upon important antecedents. It means that although onomastic bibliographies were published as parts of greater bibliographical summaries or as annual bibliographical compilations but these, being sparse, are unsuitable of efficiently helping the research carried out in this field. Compiling the selected bibliography of the Uralian languages, we would like to provide the researchers with a handbook which makes the orientation easier within the rich and colourful fields of research of Uralian onomastics.

We could not have undertaken the task of publishing a full bibliography. But in the case of a general bibliography concerning many languages, selection may even have advantages since it emphasizes things that are valuable and important for further research. The bibliography wishes to give information about onomastic works as from the very beginnings of onomastic research up to the end of the year 1999 but certainly not in a uniform profundity. Concerning the 19th century, we included principally books in the bibliography. From the first half of the 20th century, we chose mainly publications that modern researches can also rely upon and which are frequently quoted even today. Most works were selected from among those published during the last fifty years, but we did not wish to compile a full bibliography even in relation with this period. We had to select mainly in the fields of Hungarian and Finnish onomastics.

It's not an easy task to decide what is considered an onomastic publication, not even on the theoretical level and especially if we take into account the diversity of the researches of Uralian languages carried out in this field. Generally it can be stated that we took into the bibliography those scientific works that use proper names as the objects and not just as means of the research. It is evident that onomastics has the widest relationship with linguistics and history so the most difficult task is to draw the limits here. Here we overlooked those linguistic and historical works that although use a vast material of proper names but still do it only for solving the problems of their own fields of science. In the same way, from documentations and publications of sources, we included only those that were compiled mainly for onomastics. At the same time, the bibliography includes the whole territory of Uralian onomastics which means that it includes all types of proper names.

Since the onomastic material of each language is in close relationship with the proper names of the languages having a territorial contact with it, not even scientific research may be limited in this regard. So the compilers of each bibliography had to take into consideration the contact of the researches of such nature in a necessary degree. However, from onomastic works regarding primarily other languages, only those were included in the bibliography which are indispensable in the onomastic research of one of the Uralian languages.

The main chapters of the bibliography contain the bibliographies of individual Uralian languages. The trustworthiness of the compilations is guaranteed by the fact that the selection and the compilation of the bibliography was performed by researchers who are experts in the onomastics of the given language. The editor did not consider it necessary to make major changes in these bibliographies in the spirit of greater unification. Presentation according to languages was disregarded only in the case of Samoyedian languages since we wished to avoid the disintegration of the material. We regret to say that the parts concerning Vogul and Ostyak were not included in the bibliography for we were not able to find an expert to undertake the task. We honestly hope that in some later issue of OU this lack might be made up.

Within each language, the material is presented in thematic groups. The main chapters of this are the following: bibliographies, general onomastics, place names, personal names, other names, applied onomastics. Diverse topics of general onomastics were divided into four sub-chapters and these contain works about names in general, onomastics in general, institutions and events of onomastics and onomasticians. Within applied onomastics, we assigned works concerning name-planning to a separate chapter.

Within each chapter, authors follow each other in the English alphabetical order with the exception of the Estonian, Finnish and Hungarian chapters where we applied the alphabetical rules of the given languages. Works by the same author follow in a reversed time order that is from the newer ones to the older.

The bibliography includes materials published via the Internet besides the printed materials but we did not include manuscripts. Items of books published individually were emphasized with bold setting. From these, we also give information about the tables of contents of monographs, according to their scientific importance.

The editor wishes to thank the contribution of the authors of the bibliographical chapters, those who undertook the task of compiling the onomastic bibliography of the languages in question within a short time subsequent to the request. Special thanks are due to Sándor Maticsák who contributed a lot to the edition of the material of the Uralian languages in Russia and also to Valéria Tóth who took on an editorial work well exceeding the tasks of the technical editor.

In the future, we wish to compile the onomastic bibliographies of the Uralian languages annually. We plan to publish the bibliography of the year 2000 in one of the following issues of OU.
