VERBOS DENOMINATIVOS DERIVADOS DE GENTILICIOS Y TOPÓNIMOS

  • María Teresa Amado Rodríguez

Resumen

The verbs serived from gentilic nouns and toponyms, generally with suffixes -ίζω, -άζω, have the broad meaning to 'imitate the habits of people from a town' or, more specifically, 'their language and the way they speak'. We also find some examples in which they refer to the imitation of some feature of the external aspect, such as 'to wear Thessalian tunic', or some specific habit, like 'to be a pederast'. This work studies most of these verbs with their uses and documentation. Their origin is studied in those cases where the meaning is odd.
