Hronková, Veronika ; Čermák, Petr (advisor) ; Krinková, Zuzana (referee)
This thesis deals with a linguistic situation of chosen Spanish speaking countries from juridical point of view. In the beginning of the text there are briefly drafted basic terms. As the illustration of possible resolutions of the linguistic issues there is described the situation in Czech Republic and in Spain. Then we mention basic documents which are part of the language policy of European union and UN. Through obligatory documents for these international associations, we get to Spanish speaking countries out of Europe. In the introduction to Spanish speaking countries out of Europe we classify language families of American countries, and we make a distinction that emerge from regulations of language right by states. The core of the work to which we head towards are countries of South America using officially Spanish language but besides there is one or more languages spoken by people of these countries. Primarily, we are interested in regulation of language rights of indigenous people established in the constitutions of the states. The last part contents analysis of chosen states, in particular Chile, Peru, Paraguay and Bolivia. We analyse actual law regulations of languages which are in force in these states. The main attention is dedicated to Chile where there has been created a project of a...

Součková, Tereza ; Kratochvílová, Dana (advisor) ; Čermák, Petr (referee)
The present work deals with expressing concessivity in Spanish, both from the point of view of the meaning and from the point of view of the form. The aim of the research, by means of analysis of language corpora, is firstly to create a well-arranged list of the means of expressing concessivity in Spanish and compare them with respect to the frequency and the type of concessive meaning, and secondly to create a typology of Czech translations of investigated constructions. General conclusions are drawn from these observations.

Selected Ways of Expressing Probability in Spanish and in Catalan
Kolář, Luboš ; Kratochvílová, Dana (advisor) ; Čermák, Petr (referee)
(in English) This bachelor thesis deals with selected ways of expressing probability in Spanish and Catalan. Our aim is to compare both systems and the normativity of the resources in both languages. To achieve this, we employ the parallel corpus InterCorp, in which we carry out the analysis. The analysis revealed certain differences in terms of the use of modal verbs with probabilistic interpretation. The analysis also revealed certain influence of Spanish on Catalan, even within literary texts. Key words: Spanish, Catalan, modality, probability, corpus
Distribution of regular and irregular participles in Spanish: norm and usage
Tajbl, Tadeáš ; Čermák, Petr (advisor) ; Kratochvílová, Dana (referee)
This thesis focuses on the distribution of the regular and irregular participles of the verbs elegir, freír, imprimir, prender and proveer, and aims to determine whether the theoretical language description given in Nueva gramática de la lengua española corresponds to the actual language usage. The thesis is divided into two parts: a theoretical one and a practical one. The theoretical part presents a classification of participles and covers its grammatical features in terms of morphology, syntax and diachrony (language evolution). Furthermore, the theoretical part explains the methods of research, that is, the corpus analysis, and describes the characteristics of the corpora used. The practical part introduces the process and the results of the corpus data analysis. It examines the occurrences of the regular and irregular participles in the following contexts: (a) Participle in a compound verb form (meaning the perfect verb tenses, the passive voice, and the verbal periphrases); (b) participle with an adjectival function; and (c) participle with a substantive function. The conclusion of each chapter and of the thesis itself summarizes the key findings, generalizes them, and compares them with the "rules" mentioned in Nueva gramática de la lengua española.
Spanish adverbs in -mente and their Czech equivalents
Hašková, Alena ; Čermák, Petr (advisor) ; Krinková, Zuzana (referee)
The aim of this paper is to introduce Spanish adverbs in -mente and different ways of its translation to Czech. These adverbs are very productive in Spanish. The theoretical part of my thesis consists of their general description and definition of the basic terms. It also presents a general typology of Spanish adverbs (in confrontation with the typology of Czech adverbs) and analyses the origin, history, and current use of adverbs in -mente. Special attention is paid to the restriction of formation of these adverbs. The practical part contains three studies. The objective of the first analysis, for which the corpus Araneum Hispanicum Maius is used, is to show the productivity of the adverbs analysed and to verify come claims about their attributes. The other two studies focus on the ways in which adverbs denoting colour are translated from Czech to Spanish and then frequent adverbs in -mente from Spanish to Czech. The InterCorp corpus is used for these two studies.
Selected verbs of perception in Spanish and their Czech counterparts: a semantic and combinatorial analysis
Junková, Anna ; Čermák, Petr (advisor) ; Krinková, Zuzana (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with selected Spanish verbs of sensory perception and their Czech counterparts. For the purpose of this thesis I have chosen the most commonly used pair of verbs of hearing and seeing. Thus, the work focuses on the verbs escuchar, oír, mirar and ver. The practical part of the work is based on the comparison of the Czech counterparts of the verbs or on the comparison of the occurrence of the particular nouns that are associated with these verbs in the construction: verb of seeing/hearing + definite article + noun. The analyses are based on the hypothesis proceeding from the work of Jorge Fernández Jaén "Verbos de percepción sensorial en español: una clasificación cognitiva". The hypothesis is based on the assumption that the verbs escuchar and mirar evoke intentional action and, conversely, the verbs oír and ver do not express intentional action. I used two language corpora, InterCorp and Araneum Hispanicum Maius, to compare the verbs of hearing and seeing with each other. I chose InterCorp for a simple reason - it is a parallel corpus and therefore it is possible to examine the Czech translations of selected Spanish verbs. The great advantage of the Araneum Hispanicum Maius corpus is the extensive amount of texts that are of a different nature than those contained in the...

Pazlarová, Magdaléna ; Kratochvílová, Dana (advisor) ; Čermák, Petr (referee)
(in English) This master's thesis's objective is to analyze a few selected examples of Spanish verbal humor and apply two theories explaining their humorous effect during their analysis. The used theories are two. The first is Attardo's theory about humorous metaphors, and the second is Coulson's theory about frame-shifting. Both are explained in detail in the first part of the paper, including other aspects connected to them. The second part of the paper consists of the aforementioned examples of Spanish verbal humor. These authentic examples are analyzed using the theories mentioned previously in the paper, and their humorous mechanism is explained using these methods.
