Shifts in the media debates on Autonomous social center Klinika
Knapp, Matouš ; Lehečková, Eva (advisor) ; Adam, Robert (referee)
(in English): The thesis analyzes two media discourse texts about the Autonomous Social Centre Klinika. It focuses on revealing key topics, argumentation analysis and discursive practices of each individual party and on the evaluation of the potential development in the time period between the first and second text. The analysis is mainly based on the Discourse-Historical Approach (Ruth Woodak and Martin Reisigl) which views the discourse as a complex social phenomenon and it also includes a study of context (historical, social, ideological). The subjects of the analysis are discursive texts, both are radio shows - one from Radio Plus - Pro a proti (february 2015) and the other from Odpolední Plus (march 2016). Their format provides the analysis of the standpoint of each party in mutual interaction. The analysis emphasizes on the self- identification of the speakers, nominations, predictions, topics and close discourses, and finally in the conclusion on the argumentation itself. The thesis shows in detail that the discourse has much in common with legal discourse and political discourse. The conflict between individual parties is profound and a distinctive element of the argumentation is the comparison with the time period during the communist regime.

Vosmíková, Nikol ; Lehečková, Eva (advisor) ; Adam, Robert (referee)
TITLE: Prefix stacking in Czech, Russian and Bulgarian SUMMARY: This bachelor's work is uncovering lexical-semantic meanings of Czech, Russian and Bulgarian verbal prefixes and their connection with multiplied prefixing. First half of the work is reviewing general word-formative and lexical-semantic meanings in verbal prefixes. Within the frame of morphological aspect this study describes function of prefixes from the view of two antitheses completive × imperfective. The second half of this work is studying a problem of multiplied prefixes from the view of semantic verbal prefixes and judges which prefixes are with connotation of multilingual prefixes and which one are not. The last part of my study is analysing productivity of verbal prefix po- in Czech, Russian and Bulgarian language. KEYWORDS: Verbal prefixes, multiplied prefixes, derivation, lexical and super-lexical prefixes, word formation, lexical-semantic meanings, verbal aspect, modification
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

Media discourse on deposit alimony - critical discourse analysis
Pojarová, Lucie ; Řezníková, Sylva (advisor) ; Lehečková, Eva (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the media discourse on deposit alimony since the 29th of March 2017, when the proposed law about deposit alimony was approved by the Government of the Czech Republic. The theoretical frame is critical discourse analysis, specifically the Discourse-Historical Approach. In this thesis, three sets of data are analyzed: a) the version of the proposed law about the deposit alimony including the initiator's statement of reasons for proposing the law, b) electronic articles of the public media (Česká televize, Český rozhlas) and c) electronic articles of the three most popular online media (,, This thesis is a detailed case study. Using the methodology of the Discourse-Historical Approach, the strategies of nomination, predication, argumentation, perspectivization and intensification are identified together with their linguistic realizations in the texts of media discourse on deposit alimony. Keywords: single mothers, deposit alimony, media discourse, critical discourse analysis, discourse-historical approach
Current tendencies of bi-aspectual verbs in Czech
Hladíková, Barbora ; Chromý, Jan (advisor) ; Lehečková, Eva (referee)
This thesis is about Czech bi-aspectual verbs, more specifically about the bi-aspectual verbs of Czech origin and not about more often discussed verbs taken from foreign languages. The goal of this work is to evaluate if these verbs are perceived as bi-aspectual by the Czech speakers and also to check how the tests of the aspect work with bi-aspectual verbs. The analysis is realized by two acceptability judgements experiments. In the first experiment the verbs are being evaluated in the contexts requiring perfective or imperfective interpretation of the verb. In the second experiment the effect of context changes to the acceptability is examined and the knowledge about the semantics of the individual verbs is extended. Based on the results are formulated some limits of the tests of bi-aspectuality, categorization of the few verbs traditionally called as bi-aspectual is challenged and few semantics features enabling the bi-aspectuality are identified.
An Analysis of Verbal Czech Language Usage by Non-native Speakers
Pémová, Petra ; Hasil, Jiří (advisor) ; Lehečková, Eva (referee)
(in English): The work in this diploma contains an analysis of speech accuracy and fluency of Russian speaking and English speaking students of Czech language, based on case studies. For these case studies two Russian speaking students and two English speaking students were chosen to take part. The results were compared to the results of one native Czech speaker. The accuracy and fluency analysis was carried out based on the language principles of Rod Ellis. Within the accuracy analysis, the number of error free clauses and the average number of mistakes per one hundred words were measured. Accuracy of speech is examined through concrete grammatical phenomena like the usage of reflexive particle se/si and the usage of the verb to be in the past tense. The work in this diploma also considers the ability of analysed speakers to switch between language codes and to distinguish features of formal and spoken Czech language (spoken language in informal situations). The fluency of speech is studied based on the speech rate of all analysed speakers by counting the number of syllables per one hundred words. Subsequently, the number of false starts, repetition of words or phrases, the frequency of usage of parasite words and hesitation sounds were also examined. One of the diploma hypothesis is the statement...
Ad hoc gradation of "non-gradable" adjectives in Czech
Doischer, Tomáš ; Křivan, Jan (advisor) ; Lehečková, Eva (referee)
There are some adjectives in language which sound strange to a native speaker in their graded form. Consider this sentence: "These pearls are more real than the real ones!" ("Tyhle perly jsou pravější než pravé!") How can they be more real? What does it even mean? I attempt to answer these and other questions in this paper. While the phenomenon of rarely graded adjectives may quite peripheral, it is nonetheless interesting and understanding it is important for the general understanding of adjective gradation. Adjectives such as real are traditionally considered non-gradable. However, as we can see from the example, that doesn't mean they can't be graded. The distinction between gradable and non-gradable adjectives apparently cannot be clear-cut. The goal of this paper is to describe this phenomenon, determine which properties rarely graded adjectives have and how they can be graded. I use data from a large corpus of written Czech (SYN v4) to find these adjectives and the way they are used. I employ both quantitative and qualitative methods to reach a comprehensive overview of rarely graded adjectives. I use statistical methods to find parameters specific for this type of adjective and semantic analysis to divide it into well-motivated categories. I also explain why they are graded only rarely, how...
Family Communication during Mealtimes
Vršková, Barbora ; Saicová Římalová, Lucie (advisor) ; Lehečková, Eva (referee)
The diploma thesis discusses family communications during Mealtimes. The first part defines the basic theoretical concepts of the theory of children's speech and research associated with it, it defines preschool child development with an emphasis on language and further defines the concept of family communication and child directed speech. At the end of the theoretical part the thesis explains the importance of food/meals in family life. The theoretical part is mainly based on professional literature. The second part consists of five case studies that focus on the analysis of video communications during family meals. All families that participated on the recording signed a consent. The information was also obtained with the help of sociologically oriented survey about adult participants. All recordings were transcribed according to the CHAT system guidelines, which is part of the CHILDES database. The results are compared with the findings of the professional literature. Keywords communication, pre-school child, child directes speech, food/meals
Endpoints in child-directed speech by Czech native speakers
Marklová, Anna ; Mertins, Barbara (advisor) ; Lehečková, Eva (referee)
The subject of this thesis is presence of endpoints in child-directed speech of Czech native speakers. It is based on researches, which show that czech language prefers holistic perspective. This occur for exemple in description of the motion event; a speaker tends to include the endpoint. Thanks to its holistic perspective, Czech language is unique among other Slavic languages, which use a phasal perspective. The phasal perspective highlights the motion process instead of the endpoint. There are several reasons, why Czech language uses holistic perspective: the most common is the proximity to German langugae, which also uses holistic perspective, and specific category of aspect. My thesis examines whether children can learn one of the feature of the holistic perspective, often referring to endpoints in the description of motion events. Research data consists in transcribing informal conversations between children and parents over incentives made for this purpose. I examine total amount od endpoints and how they are expressed. The analysis of the data proves high concentration of endpoints and also proves, that parents direct child's attention to them.
