Narmin Shirzad kyzy Gojayeva

Abstract

The article deals with the issues of studying the stylistic possibilities and lexical and semantic features of toponyms, given in the work of the famous writer Anar "White Ram, Black Ram". The role of toponyms in increasing the work's artistic value and enriching its internal content is noted. The writer expresses his attitude to the toponyms he uses in his career and creates a connection between the character, behaviour and toponymic units of the essence. Many toponyms in the novel are the product of the writer's imagination, although some part of his artistic style is taken from real life. These geographical names are folk toponyms which the writer dreamed of and wanted to bring to life. Reading this famous writer's work, we feel the true beauty and richness of the Azerbaijani language. At the same time, by studying the toponyms developed in the literature, we can get detailed information about the way of life, socio-political relations, religious affiliation, and national thinking of the Azerbaijani people of that time. In work, we see the romantic world of the writer, his thoughts, dreams and hopes; the writer considers the happiness of his people in their unity and integrity in the reunification of Northern and Southern Azerbaijan.
