Abstract

<b>Naamgewing van eiename in gesproke taal en gebaretaal - 'n vergelyking</b> <br>Aan die hand van data van twee Dowe gemeenskappe word die beginsels wat 'n rol speel by die toekenning van eiename ondersoek en ooreenkomste en verskille wat betref die toekenning van eiename in gesproke taal word aangetoon. Beskrywende beginsels wat 'n rol speel, is die fisiese kenmerke of gedrag en bepaalde maniërismes van die benoemde, assosiasies wat deur die benoemde opgeroep word, vertaling van die betekenis van 'n geskrewe naam en naamoordrag. Behalwe die beskrywende beginsels is die inkorporering van die handvorm van die alfabetiese letters 'n tweede belangrike beginsel wat 'n rol speel by naamgewing.

This study utilises data from two Deaf communities to investigate the principles operant in the giving of personal names and to demonstrate similarities and differences as compared with those operant in spoken-language communities. Descriptive principles which operate are the physical features of the person to be named, his or her behaviour and mannerisms, associations evoked by him or her, translation of the meaning of the written name, and naming after someone else. In addition to the descriptive principles, the incorporation of the handshape of alphabetical signs is a second important principle in the giving of personal names.
