The choice of syllable and character within the transferring of proper names into Chinese

The below presented results are outcome of the project titled The choice of syllable and character within the transcribing of proper names into Chinese, reg. nr. IGA_FF_2014_079, which was realized thanks to special-purpose funding for specific university research, which was allocated to Palacký University in Olomouc in 2014 by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic (MŠMT ČR). The research was focused on analyses of transfer of foreign proper names into Chinese language and its writing system (i.e. simplified characters). The research objects were Chinese replicas of English, German and Japanese proper names which were coined by language users from mainland China and which were divided into three sub-categories, namely anthroponyms, toponyms and chrematonyms. The obtained results are available below.
