-tegi leku-atzizkiaren aldaeraz: toponimiaren ekarpenak euskal fonetikari [A propos de l’évolution du suffixe locatif -tegi : apport de la toponymie à la phonétique basque]

Abstract : This article examines the Basque locative suffix -tegi ‘abode, place’, which tooks part in the morphology of Basque house names. Relying on Euskal Corpus Onomastikoa (ECO) database of the Royal Academy of Basque Language, we compare written and oral forms of 148 house names, spread over 23 municipalities of Lower Navarre and Labourd. The diachronic study shows the -tegi suffix’s variation in a particuliar context, that is to say it becomes -te when it is followed by the determinant a in absolutive case, after a passage through -tei (Serorategia > Serorateia > Seroratea ‘The house of the nun’). Only 9 towns are concerned by this phenomenon very localized and a possible explanation could be linked to the natural process of phonetic change of the diphthong ei, contrary to what happened on the surrounding towns.
