  • Purpose of this thesis is the reconstruction of the various trends or developments in the government approach to toponyms. This is done by comparing subsequent map series of the same areas where linguistic minorities were or are prevalent. The study

  • The linguistic analysis supports the hypothesis that Wisconsin glacier ice influenced the distribution of native North American linguistic groups. The distribution of languages suggests that the arrival of humans in the New World predated the last
