HYDROGRAPHIC OBJECTS OF THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE MONGOLS (MONGYOL-UN NIYUCA TOBCIYAN) IN THE CONTEXT OF THE HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHY OF INNER ASIA
Sodnompilova M. M.
In studies of historical geography, hydrographic objects are of particular interest. Hydrographic terminology is a very ancient and stable layer of vocabulary, in the formation of which image words dominate. It is revealed that the names of the largest rivers of the region are identified with the existing hydrographic objects. The names of small water sources such as streams have not been preserved and their localization on the modern map is difficult. There is a predominance of such hydronyms in the SHM as müren, qoroqan, bulaq, usun, and the absence of a hydronym as γol.
