Name[eedit | eedit soorce]

The Slovene name o the veelage comes frae German Dornberg, meanin 'thorn hill'. This wis the offeecial name till the end o Warld War I an aw, when the veelage came unner Italian admeenistration. At first, the Italians uised a Italianized version o the tradeetional name o the veelage, Dorimbergo, but durin the Fascist period the name wis Italianisit tae Montespino, which is a leeteral Italian translation o the German name. Efter Warld War II, the veelage briefly reacquired its auld name, but in 1948, the name wis chyngit again acause o its German soond, an the name Zali Hrib (leeterally, 'fair hill') wis inventit. The locals rejectit the new designation an demandit the auld name back. The name o the dounset wis chyngit tae Dornberk in 1952, but the feenal -g wis replacit wi a -k.[3] Nivertheless, the locals still refer tae it as Dornberg rather than Dornberk. This phonetic difference is no perceivit in staundart Slovene, in which the feenal voicit velar stap /g/ is pronooncit as voiceless /k/. Housomeivver, in the local Karst dialect spoken in the lawer Vipava Valley, /g/ haes developit intae the voicit glottal fricative /ɦ/, an aften a voiceless glottal fricative at the end o wirds.
