In this text, the author presents details of her research on the way in which numerous place-names are strongly rooted in the physical features of the land. Using a thematic approach, she describes how varied physical characteristics, such as hills and valleys, trees and forests, marshes, moors, springs and lakes have shaped place-names and establishes a general picture of a people in possession of a vast and topographical vocabulary.
