Se on Karhunmäki, ei Karhumäki

Karhunmäen ylpeänä asukkaana olen valitettavasti saanut kohdata toistuvaa huolimattomuutta kaupunginosamme nimen oikeinkirjoituksessa. Esimerkiksi sunnuntain 2.8.2015 Karjalaisen Ajassa-palstalla oli Karhunmäkeen toistuvasti viitattu “Karhumäkenä”. Myös erään Joensuun alakoulun rehtori käyttää Karhunmäestä johdonmukaisesti virheellistä “Karhumäki”-nimitystä. Lisäksi asuntojen myynti-ilmoituksissa mainostetaan luvattoman usein “Karhumäen” kaupunginosaa.

Karhunmäki on kaupunginosa Joensuussa. Karhumäki on kaupunki Karjalan tasavallassa Venäjällä. Joensuun Karhunmäen kaupunginosasta on siis syytä käyttää sen oikeaa kirjoitusasua Karhunmäki väärinkäsitysten välttämiseksi.
