Use of Loanwords in contemporary Norwegian and Dutch
Bartásková, Pavla ; Štajnerová, Petra (advisor) ; Hrnčířová, Zdeňka (referee)
The subject of the thesis is to appraise the situation of the extent and the way of use of English loanwords in Norwegian and Dutch. The issue is presented on the background of historical development of borrowing in these languages and also explained in the contemporary tendency of English words usage in non-English speaking countries. To document the official attitude of Norwegian and Dutch media to loanwords we add the results of survey among the particular editors. On the basis of loanwords principles in Norwegian and Dutch, presented in the theoretical part, we assess the English loanwords in particular articles published in Norwegian and Dutch Internet news journals. The attention is aimed to the general analysis of English loanwords in Norwegian and Dutch, to the analysis of the domains noticeably influenced by the loans and to the morphological and orthographical integration of loanwords in the monitored languages. The outcomes of each analysis for Norwegian and Dutch are compared and interpreted. Key words: English, borrowing, Dutch, journalistic style, loanwords, Norwegian
Support of the Dutch language extra muros
Schwarzová, Hedvika ; Hrnčířová, Zdeňka (advisor) ; Ultzen, Jesse (referee)
(English) The aim of this bachelor thesis is to chart the functioning and working of organizations which are supporting the Dutch language outside the language territory of the Netherlands, Belgium and Suriname, thus in areas where Dutch is not the official language. Particular attention will be paid to the Dutch Language Union, which supports Dutch Studies and teaching of Dutch language around the World. I focus mainly on the functioning of this organization, its activities and projects which are supporting the Dutch language not only in Europe but also in the World. Furthermore, this thesis deals with other organizations such as the Comenius - Association for Dutch Studies in Central Europe and others. The following chapter is focused on the amount of interest in the Dutch language in the World and in the Czech Republic based on the results of international exams. I refer to this topic in the next chapter, which focuses on Dutch in the Czech Republic, study opportunities at Czech universities and interesting projects for Czech students. Because of recent changes in the Dutch Language Union, I've added a brief chapter on the current situation. Keywords: Dutch, language, support, organization, extra muros, education, Dutch Language Union, Comenius, Certificate of Dutch as Foreign Language
Dutch compound adjectives with strengthening meaning without equivalents in Czech
Chábová, Eliška ; Hrnčířová, Zdeňka (advisor) ; Kijonková, Jana (referee)
(English): The topic of this bachelor thesis is Dutch compound adjectives with strengthening meaning, while this issue is considered from the point of view of a native speaker of Czech language. The author focuses primarily on the possibilities of translating this phenomenon from Dutch into Czech. Taking account of the differences between these two languages and their systems, the author will try to achieve the highest possible semantic consensus. Theoretical foundations for the research are sought in the knowledge based on morphology, word formation, semantics and translation studies. These bases are then applied in practice, to the author's own translation of a predefined group of compound adjectives with strengthening meaning. The main aim of the thesis is to assess the translatability of these adjectives into Czech and subsequently to compare the appropriateness of different translation equivalents. Keywords: Adjective, comparison, compound, Dutch, Czech, equivalent
Aspectuality in Czech and Dutch
Vymazalová, Tereza ; Hrnčířová, Zdeňka (advisor) ; Pekelder, Jan (referee)
The thesis deals with aspectuality in Czech and Dutch. The theoretical part covers the most important widely recognized and widespread theoretical approaches to the issue. It also compares to which stream Czech and Dutch linguists tend to and how the phenomenon is discussed in grammar. The main points of the work are aspect and Aktionsart. Both of them have similar semantic features, which are the main criteria for comparison of these two typologically different languages. Both in Czech and Dutch, the perception of aspect and manner of its expression varies. The aim of this work is to bring the Czech user of Dutch options for how Czech aspectual meanings may be expressed in Dutch. The practical part contains, besides an overview of the language means, also the practical analysis of two fictional texts, which supports answering two questions. First, whether the Dutch translation preserves the concept of Czech aspectual opposites and if so, in what ways. Second, whether the Czech interpreter has tendency to enrich Dutch text with aspects or not. key words: aspect, Aktionsart, Dutch, imperfectivity, perfectivity
Use of diminutives in the internet discussions regarding the gender of the speaker
Egedová, Miroslava ; Hrnčířová, Zdeňka (advisor) ; Rezková, Iva (referee)
This bachelor thesis compares the use of diminutives among men and women in the computer-mediated communication. It contains a theorethical summary of basic grammatical rules regarding the formation of diminutives, the semantic aspects of their use in an informal language (with emphasis on expressivity) and an overview of the socioliguistic theories within the framework of gender differences. The research section is based on a sociolinguistic study of this particular subject. The aim is to find the most significant differences of the word choices and the frequency of use of diminutives of men and women and possibly a reason for it. Abstract Deze bachelor scriptie vergelijkt het gebruik van verkleinwoorden tussen mannen en vrouwen in informele gesprekken op het internet. Hij bevat een theoretisch gedeelte dat de basisregels inzake grammatica van verkleinwoorden uitlegt. Ook worden er semantische specifieken van het gebruik van verkleinwoorden in informele taal vermeld (wat expressiviteit betreft) naast een overzicht van de sociolinguïstische theorieën in termen van genderverschillen. Voorts is er een praktisch hoofdstuk gewijd aan een sociolinguïstisch onderzoek. Het doel hiervan is om de meest opvallende verschillen tussen de woordkeuze en de frequentie van het gebruik van verkleinwoorden van...
The comparison of semantic similarity between Dutch and Czech idioms containing a part of body, focused on "hand"
Vervloet, Daniela ; Hrnčířová, Zdeňka (advisor) ; Gielen, Albertus Josephus Dominicus (referee)
(English) The aim of the thesis is ascertain and determine the level of equivalent Dutch somatic phrase units and Czech counterparts. At first the theoretical part is generally focused on a theory of phrasal idioms, the next part is dealing with phraseology such as a linguistic discipline. A following part of the thesis includes a theoretical base for dealing with an analytical part of the work which is focused on a term of equivalent. In the analytical part is used method of German linguistic Otto Kade on its base are 62 somatic phrase units with component "hand" divided into three categories. Van Dale Idioomwoordenboek (1999) is used such as primary source for a selection of phrase units which are divided according to the level of equivalence: a) full equivalent phrasal idioms, b) partly equivalent phrasal idioms c) phrasal idioms without equivalent. The result of the survey indicates a high level of a semantic equivalency, some of partial variations and concordance in a level of a structural equivalency.

On the inherency priciple in contemporary Dutch
Kyslý, Martin ; Pekelder, Jan (advisor) ; Hrnčířová, Zdeňka (referee)
The purpose of this thesis is to describe the phenomenon known as the Inherency Principle in the Dutch language from the perspective of a non-native speaker. The study focuses on research and analysis of how modern journalism incorporates grammatical rules, and specifically the application of the Inherency Principle within journalistic text. The study is based on a review of several newspaper articles from a range of news categories including current affairs; culture; comment; sport etc. The structure of the sentences within these texts is critically analysed and carefully assessed to identify if the practical use of language in journalism corresponds to the rules of the Inherency Principle as defined in The Algemene Nederlandse Spraakkunst (ANS). The ANS is considered to hold some of the most important and complex grammatical functions by both expert and non-native Dutch speakers. The Inherency Principle in particular is linked to a number of issues that are explored in this paper. The second chapter of the thesis outlines the theoretical basis of the Inherency Principle using two descriptive grammatical handbooks of the Dutch language, namely Algemene Nederlandse zin, by Haeseryn et. al. from 1997, and Grammatica van de Nederlandse zin, by Vandeweghe et. al. from 2004. The subsequent chapters...

Kmeťová, Anna ; Hrnčířová, Zdeňka (advisor) ; Daalder, Saskia (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to examine the current Dutch modal particles and ascertain if this word class is fully translatable into Czech and Slovak language. The first, theoretical part of this thesis focuses primarily on the Dutch modal particles as such; explains what is modality, classifies particles as a word class, describes the characteristics of modal particles, which specific words are considered as modal particles, what kinds of modal particles exist in the Dutch language and what are their attributes both from a pragmatic and syntactic perspective. The theoretical part explains in detail the ways in which modality is expressed in Czech and Slovak, what kinds of particles in these two languages exist, and if there exist modal particles, which words are considered as these. In the conclusion of the theoretical part of the thesis is summarized what do have these three languages in common in this area, whether by the term modal particles is understood the same word class in each of these languages and whether it appears that the Dutch modal particles do have in Czech and Slovak their exact equivalents and are therefore fully translatable into these two languages. This claim will be verified in the practical part of the thesis. In the second, practical part of the thesis are the Dutch modal...
