Abstract

Purpose of this thesis is the reconstruction of the various trends or developments in the government approach to toponyms. This is done by comparing subsequent map series of the same areas where linguistic minorities were or are prevalent. The study is by no means a linguistic study but it is intended to be a cartographical analysis. The study has been carried out in a number of contact-zones such as Belgium, Wales, Scotland, South Tirol, Carinthia, Lausatia, Vallée d'Aosta and Corsica. (AGD).
