Abstract [en]

This book is a presentation and a linguistic interpretation of the place-names of the district of Tanum in the former County of Gothenburg and Bohus in western Sweden. The studied names consist of names of lakes, rivers, islands, mountains etc., of different units of cultivated land and of other entities such as bridges and roads. Dialect pronunciations and earlier name forms found in various sources are presented to the reader. Several of these names designate localities that cannot be identified today but were once part of an ancient name-landscape. A large number of dialect words are also presented.

This book also contains two essays. The first essay discusses the series Ortnamnen i Göteborgs och Bohus län with an emphasis on its design, its methods of interpretation and its theoretical approach. The second essay discusses the topographical designations berg, fjäll, hog, kulle and ås in their functions as appellatives and as place-name elements. Potential similarities and differences between the two systems are discussed.
