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
