Appellative

Postby Slava » Fri Jul 01, 2016 4:34 pm

We have had appellation, but somehow it never made it to the Agora, so here's a relative that can be done to make up for it: appellative.

It's the word that is the appellation, if I understand correctly. Thus, Eric the Red is an appellation, with the Red being the appellative part.

I suppose one way to use it now would be to have an appellative jury for a naming contest; or even just an appellative contest.

Thoughts?
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
