The role of proofreading in modern media
Platil, Daniel ; Slanec, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Halada, Jan (referee)
Bachelor's thesis "Proofreading and its role in today's media on the example of the magazine Respekt" consists of two parts. The first theoretical section mainly focuses on the definition of key concepts, proofreading work, conventions, and rules concerning interventions into the texts. It also attempts to put the change of the profession into the historical context, which is mainly related to the rapid technical development of the polygraphic industry. The practical section subsequently analytically verified readers' satisfaction with the level of linguistic competence of the magazine Respekt through a questionnaire. Following the results of the questionnaire that indicated worsening quality proofreading of ten selected issues from the years 1997, 2007 and 2017 was made to assess whether there have been any changes concerning the level of linguistic competence. This thesis attempts to put uncovered shortcomings both into the context of the era and the editorial work of the analysed media. On the occasion, language editor Petra Švehlová directly from magazine Respekt was approached - she attempted to interpret and evaluate the acquired data. Proofreading that was made did uncover certain misconducts, however, did not confirm the initial hypothesis itself that was supported by the research mentioned...

Magazine Dikobraz 1968 - 1970
Parolek, Jan ; Slanec, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Osvaldová, Barbora (referee)
This work concerns the question whether it is possible to consider Poland a new regional power in the Central and/or Eastern Europe. The work is based on constructivist viewpoint and it therefore examines the self-perception of Poland and the perception of its role by other relevant actor. It establishes a definition of a regional power, by which a regional power is a state that considers itself to be such power, that is considered to be such power by other relevant actors, that provides public goods in its region and the projects its ideology onto the secondary regional actors. I examine how well does Poland fit into these criteria. It surely considers itself a regional power and is even considered one by its western allies. Its actual acting as a regional power is complicated, though by its insufficient economic power (in comparison with, for example, Germany) as it does not allow him an effective provision of public goods. Also its regional ideology is not sufficiently coherent and inclusive and interesting for the other actors. Besides all that, it is faced by a Russian competition in the Eastern Europe and by the indifference of the potential secondary actors in the Central Europe, as they tend to orientate themselves to Germany, rather than Poland. Poland undeniably has the potential to...
