A child in the acquisition process assimilates different concepts, many of the phenomena is trying to call the same thing. Of particular interest in the development of language is to discover the meanings of words by children, on the one hand, the limited empowerment of language patterns from the environment, on the other – giving the full activity of the child's cognitive, linguistic counterparts and unusually broad mindedness These issues worth a closer look by examining six years old children's understanding of meanings of words and show the children’s definition of names.

The very definition of consciousness is extremely important from the perspective of linguistics. This refers to the child's understanding that words are merely conventional signs of referential function, which – as a world language elements – subject to the rules of morphology, structural, semantic, and others. Conscious use of language by the child appears at the time of achieving maturity of the child's schooling.

The study children's language deliberately chose the concept of love and happiness, because they do not correspond to real designata, refer to abstract phenomena associated with the sphere of feelings and emotions.

Typy słowotwórcze nazwisk odapelatywnych na podstawie zapisów w sławatyckich księgach metrykalnych z lat 1915-1921
Word-formation types of surnames pertaining to common words, pursuant to the records found in the parish registers from Sławatycze (1915- 1921)
Surnames formed on the basis of apellative lexis, were created from common words, by means of a complete transfer of a given word to the personal name or by means of combining common words with various suffixes. However, it has to be stressed that modern surnames have no connotations as far as their dictionary meaning s are concerned. Upon shifting from the pool of common words to the anthroponym group, words lost their lexical connotations entirely.The prominent issue discussed in this thesis is the structural analysis of surnames pertaining to common words. Therefore the focus is the structure of anthroponyms based on appellative lexis, or what derivation procedures accompanied their creation. It is difficult to indicate suffix formants distinctive of surnames pertaining to common words. The abundance of such surnames results in a high number of possible surname-formative formants.
My analysis of surnames excerpted from the records in the public registers from Sławatycze dated 1915 – 1921 aims to distinguish and characterize word-formation formants representative of the examined area. The most plentiful are derived words, created by means of adding East Slavic suffixes such as: -uk, -czuk, -ko, -in, -un, -ło and others. Also common are names created on the basis of foreign, especially Ukrainian and Russian stems. The thesis comprises a dictionary of surnames that indicates the semantic root of anthroponyms found in the sources.

1 Mirosław Bańko uważa, że blog należy uznać za rzeczownik rodzaju męskiego nieżywotnego. W świetle normy wzorcowej formy fleksyjne odpowiednio brzmieć powinny w dopełniaczu: blogu, w bierniku blog. Potocznie, a więc w odniesieniu do normy użytkowej, rzeczownik odmieniany jest według wzorca odmiany rzeczowników rodzaju męskozwierzęcego – wówczas synkretyzm biernika i dopełniacza sprowadza się do formy bloga.
