Etymology and usage of "voivodeship"

The Polish term województwo, designating a second-level Polish or Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth administrative unit, derives from "wojewoda" (etymologically, "war leader," but now used only for the governor of a województwo) and the suffix "-ztwo (a "state or condition"). Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. ... For other uses, see Governor (disambiguation). ...


As a second-level administrative unit, województwo is often rendered in English as "province," the term that is used for such units in most countries of the world. A province is a territorial unit, almost always a country subdivision. ...


According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word voivodeship appeared in English for the first time in 1792, spelled woiwodship, in the sense of "the district or province governed by a voivode." The word subsequently also appeared, for the first time in 1886, in the sense of "the office or dignity of a voivode." The Oxford English Dictionary print set The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) is a dictionary published by the Oxford University Press (OUP), and is generally regarded as the most comprehensive and scholarly dictionary of the English language. ... 1792 was a leap year starting on Sunday (see link for calendar). ... Year 1886 (MDCCCLXXXVI) was a common year starting on Friday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Sunday of the 12-day slower Julian calendar). ...


The presence of a word in the Oxford English Dictionary attests to nothing but the word's use on at least one occasion in the history of the English language.


The English word "voivodeship," which is a hybrid of voivode and -ship (a suffix likewise meaning a "state or condition") that replicates those two elements found in the Polish original, has never been much used in English. The 2,478-page Random House Dictionary of the English Language, second edition, unabridged (1987), while including "voivode," does not list or otherwise refer to "voivodeship." It is not an acceptable word in the official Scrabble dictionary, and has never been used in the New York Times crossword puzzle. Etymologically, a hybrid word is a word that has one part derived from one language and another part derived from a different language. ... The verb to scrabble also means to scratch, scramble or scrape about: see Wiktionary:scrabble. ... The New York Times is an internationally known daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed in the United States and many other nations worldwide. ... Crossword Puzzle was the second to last album made by The Partridge Family, and was not one of the most popular albums. ...


Of Polish-English, English-Polish dictionaries, Jan Stanisławski's Great Polish-English Dictionary, 5th edition (1977), translates województwo as "province" or the "office" of a wojewoda. The English-to-Polish volume includes "voivode" but does not even list "voivodeship." Jan StanisÅ‚awski (1893–1973) was a Polish lexicographer. ...


Similarly the Kościuszko Foundation Dictionary translates województwo as "province" or "the administration" of such — not as "voivodeship." The English-to-Polish volume lists neither "voivode" nor "voivodeship." In the latter volume, wojewoda appears as one of three synonyms for the English word, "governor."


In light of the foregoing, some have questioned the appropriateness of "voivodeship," rather than "province," as the English equivalent of województwo; and of "voivode," rather than "governor," as the equivalent of wojewoda. Dynamic equivalence and formal equivalence are two approaches to translation. ...


The chief impediment to the systematic rendering of województwo" as "province" seems to be the fear, in some quarters, that it will cause confusion with the pre–Partitions-of-the-Polish-Lithuanian-Commonwealth use of the Polish cognate term "prowincja" to designate the three major subdivisions of the Commonwealth — Greater Poland, Lesser Poland, and Lithuania. That objection is, however, easily overcome by rendering "prowincja," in that context, by the English word, "Region."
