Sažetak
Place names, as landscape signifiers, indisputably enable the most direct way of „reading the landscape“, since names directly reflect the relationship between humans and the land. At the same time place names provide valuable data on the ethnolinguistic affiliation of the community that created them. Names may indicate former ways of life, as well as linguistic and cultural changes that occurred over time. Toponomastic research is usually conducted from the linguistic or geographical perspective, whereas anthropological research so far did not pay due attention to place names. However, anthropology can offer a new approach to the study of place names. With data from place name research, we can analyze how humans have perceived and experienced their relationship with the landscape. The landscape can be „read“ as a system of communication, within which naming is most explicit way of shaping and identifying with the landscape. Within the language system place names never occur randomly. On the contrary, names regularly represent an ordered set of signs in the framework of micro- community as well as indicate relationships to the landscape. Reality is interpreted through the connection between the geographical realities (objects in the landscape) and names (language signs). The purpose of this paper is to show the relationship between humans and the landscape on several Croatian islands through the analysis of the distribution of few selected geographical terms and place names derived from them. Data has been collected through our own field research (the islands of Brač, Iž, Mljet, Rab, Pag, Pašman, Ugljan), and relevant toponomastic literature on other Croatian islands. For the analysis and mapping we used GIS (ArcGIS 10.1 software) in order to point out the possibility of using GIS in the ethnolinguistic research.
