The Ethnonym “Bulgaro” in the Italian Language


Authors:
Tanya Topalova

Pages: 379-389

Abstract:

The stereotypical image of Bulgarian people in the Italian mind often has a negative connotation. There are no definite reasons for the pejorative attitude, but the ethnonym bulgaro is part of several stable word combinations or basis for word formation with negative semantics. In general, toponyms and anthroponyms containing the stem bulgaro are devoid of connotation.

Keywords:
