EN, article personau onorific ?

Abstract : The microtoponymy of the zone of L’Isle-Jourdain (30 mn of Toulouse in gascon zone) is strongly marked by de the presence of EN + X which goes back up in the name of the owner of the farm preceded by the honorary particule EN. As personal article, we expect that is only used in front of names of people (En Martin, En Colau, etc.). The use of EN in front of a name of job as En Gireta suggest two hypotheses: • Or in En Gireta, Gireta is a name of someone derived of a name of job and can be still article at the time of the formation of the toponym. • Or in En Gireta, Gireta is a name of job and it supposes that EN is reanalyzed as preposition in the meaning of “entà” in the sense of Toulouse (else’s house).
