Lišková, Michaela ; Vaňková, Irena (advisor) ; Bozděchová, Ivana (referee) ; Orgoňová, Olga (referee)
The aim of the interdisciplinary doctoral dissertation is to answer the research question What is a neologism? The research was inspired by the methodology relying on three types of data that J. Bartmiński specifies for studying stereotypes as part of the language picture of the world, i. e. systemic, textual and empirical data. Neologisms are expounded by confronting the linguistic, media and everyday picture of the world with the use an explicative characteristic including connotations of the concept. After introducing the neologism within the context of words marked stylistically with respect to time, the exposition is structured according to (non- homogeneous) criteria, on the basis of which neologisms in the reviewed literature are defined: the criterion of existence, the criterion of time, the lexicographic criterion, the psychological criterion, the structural criterion, the criterion of variety and the criterion of instability and stability. The media image of neologism was examined using the qualitative-quantitative method of content analysis in 93 media texts from 2006 and 2007, and 2016 and 2017. The empirical data were obtained by questionnaires from 2017 and 2018 with 100 respondents aged 11 to 81. In summary, the concept of neologisms is understood as a very heterogeneous one. A list...

Lexical idioms in English
Vašků, Kateřina ; Klégr, Aleš (advisor) ; Čermák, František (referee) ; Bozděchová, Ivana (referee)
According to the standard definition phraseology deals with multi-word lexical units, i.e. word combinations. Voices claiming that even complex words composed of two or more meaningful units may qualify for the status of (lexical) phrasemes/idioms, especially when their meaning is non- compositional, are still very isolated, in spite of the fact that linguistic literature is teeming with references to idiomatic compounds and derivatives (Chap. 3). In fact, the only systematic treatment of lexical idioms seems to be that offered by Čermák (2007), who focuses primarily on lexical idioms in Czech. The aim of the thesis is therefore to explore the situation in English and attempt to develop a useful definition of, and especially criteria for, distinguishing lexical idioms from other complex lexemes and provide an outline of the main types of lexical idioms obtaining in English. After an introduction (Chap. 1) and the presentation of state-of-the-art approaches to phraseology and the relevant information about phraseological units and their features (Chap. 2), the thesis reviews Čermák's theory of lexical idioms which inspired their quantitative study in Czech (Chap. 4). The core part is the analysis of two samples. The first one, gathered from the BNC, includes a random selection of 1000 single-word...
Lexical Expressions of Timbre of Musical Sounds in Czech
Ceháková, Markéta ; Bozděchová, Ivana (advisor) ; Lehečková, Eva (referee)
This bachelor thesis addresses the general nature of lexical expressions used to describe timbre of musical sounds in Czech language. This part of vocabulary has not been linguistically described in Czech language yet, the main goal of the thesis therefore is to find out what kind of expressions are used to describe timbre in Czech language, how expansive this area of vocabulary approximately is, with what frequency do these expressions occur in language and whether they are used in a systematic way. The thesis also focuses on a semantic nature of these expressions. Since many of them are in fact metaphorical, the thesis aims to find the source domains from which the expressions describing timbre are taken. Data for the research has been collected by filling an on-line form. In ideal case, this thesis should describe the general nature of this part of vocabulary and offer some possibilities for further research. Keywords: timbre, music, frequency, conceptual metaphor
