The subject of the present work is the investigation of a limited segment of toponyms, more specifically, the one represented by the denominations in which there is found the appellative boier-boyar. The analysed area was also limited, the region of Oltenia providing us with the necessary information.
The three directions of research considered the following aspects:
a) the internal structure of the denominations;
b) the quality of the term from the morphological and onomastic point of view;
c) the frequency that the actual constructions register in the inventory of the place names from Oltenia.
boyar, history, toponymy, structure, frequency.
