Expressing Future in Portuguese
Ondráčková, Veronika ; Svobodová, Petra (advisor) ; Hricsina, Jan (referee)
Future tense and periphrastic construction ir + infinitive are key ways of expressing the future in Portuguese. Existing research in this area has dealt with the historical development of their use until the 20th century; this thesis follows it by analyzing the current state. In the theoretical part of the thesis, we describe the terms future tense and verbal periphrasis ir + infinitive based on Portuguese grammar books and professional articles, focusing mainly on their semantic and temporal side. In the second part, we present the results of corpus analysis processed in the synchronous corpus Aranea Portugallicum Maius, which show that in today's written Portuguese the future tense is still used more often than the periphrastic construction, we also follow up the contexts in which they are used and deal with the issue of mesoclises.
Contrastive analysis of the absolute superlative in Portuguese and its Czech counterparts
Černá, Barbora ; Hricsina, Jan (advisor) ; Svobodová, Petra (referee)
This master thesis deals with the synthetic absolute superlative in contemporary Portuguese and its Czech counterparts. The aim was to describe the phenomenon in detail, explain the usage of doublet forms and discover the most frequent Czech counterparts of the absolute superlative in Portuguese language. The research was based on a corpora analysis of a Portuguese corpus named Corpus do Português and on a contrastive analysis of the parallel corpus Intercorp. The results show that in the case of the usage of the doublets, the borders between spoken and formal language might fade away, one of the doublets (formal vs. informal) often dominates and the usage is also influenced, apart from the level of formality, by other factors, for example by the variety of Portuguese. The most frequent Czech counterpart of the absolute superlative is a positive adjective usually bearing a higher value of expressiveness than the Portuguese adjective. The Czech language expresses the value of the absolute superlative primarily through its lexicon. Other counterparts are various expressions using adverbs, prefixes, diminutive or augmentative suffixes etc. In conclusion, a reverse control was made, and we identified the most frequent equivalents of several chosen Czech counterparts.
The Linguistic Feminization in Contemporary Portuguese
Folvarčný, Martin ; Svobodová, Petra (advisor) ; Hricsina, Jan (referee)
This diploma thesis focuses on the expression of the feminine gender in contemporary Portuguese. It is mainly concentrated on the manifestations of linguistic feminization within two language variants of Portuguese (European and Brazilian). The thesis is divided into several parts. The first part focuses on general issues related to the grammatical category of gender. This means that the linguistic gender is examined from a historical, semantic and syntactic point of view. Due to different interpretations of this category, the very nature of the grammatical gender is also discussed. The second part analyses the different ways in which the feminine gender can be expressed in contemporary Portuguese. The practical part is introduced by the third chapter and is connected with the main goal of this diploma thesis. It consists in verifying whether the manifestations of linguistic feminization, in this case the use of gender inflected forms, are common linguistic phenomena in Portuguese or not. To confirm this statement, linguistic data from two language corpora were used for this verification. Furthermore, the answers to the online questionnaire aiming at this issue became an additional source of the necessary data. The resulting figures prove a certain presence of linguistic feminization in both...
