Polish-German relations in urbanonyms of Szczecin Pomerania
This article describes processes of urbanonym creation in the cities located in Western Pomerania and western region of Poland after 1945. The authoress makes efforts to indicate extraonomastic motivations – cultural, social and political – that created a basis for former German names, and for new Polish names that have replaced them. This tendency is illustrated by examples of urbanonyms that originate from chosen cities located in the explored region. The onomastic relation between new and old names is highlighted.
