Prefixes and prefixoids of Latin and Greek origin as a prerequisite for understanding foreign words in four-year grammar school students
Králová, Eliška ; Janovec, Ladislav (advisor) ; Šindelářová, Jaromíra (referee) ; Mitter, Patrik (referee)
Classical languages - Latin and Greek - have been influencing the vocabulary of the Czech language throughout its independent development. Both languages contribute to the process of creating new words to a large extent even today. This does not apply only to terminologies of various scientific fields but also to the naming of phenomena and facts of our everyday life. In connection with globalization and the general effort for language internationalization, classical languages, thanks to their flexibility and ability to link with domestic and foreign word-forming components, are very intensively involved in neology. The aim of this dissertation is to demonstrate how high the level of understanding of word-forming components from Latin and Greek is shown by students in the 1st and 4th year of the four-year general grammar school, and to what extent possible unfamiliarity prevents them from a correct understanding of similarly formed expressions. The tool for determining the scope of knowledge among students was a didactic test administered at five four-year grammar schools in the Czech Republic, and every time, for comparison, in all parallels of the 1st and 4th year. The results of the research may help to improve the didactic processing of the curriculum in Czech language classes, and to enhance...

Kovářová, Jana ; Hájková, Eva (advisor) ; Höflerová, Eva (referee) ; Šindelářová, Jaromíra (referee)
The dissertation focuses on teaching of so called advanced writing (in Czech) to secondary- school pupils who are native Russian speakers. We investigate the topic in the framework of a specific curriculum topic, i.e. administrative style genres. The aim of the dissertation is a) to identify the approach of teachers and that of Russian-speaking pupils towards this particular part of the curriculum, b) to assess the differences between texts of the chosen genres written by Czech pupils and pupils with Russian mother tongue, and, finally, c) to propose didactic solution for teaching the given administrative style genres to Russian-speaking pupils. We approach the topic with qualitative research methods. The practical part of the thesis consists of four parts. In the first one, on the basis of interviews, we analyse the teachers' approach, collect the evidence of critical places as well as examples of good practice. The second part looks closely at the Russian-speaking pupils' view. It has been discovered the pupils often cannot evaluate their language competences objectively, and generally, they lack metacognitive skills. The third part of the thesis compares - from the point of view of functional stylistics - 180 texts by Czech and native Russian pupils. The comparison shows the native Russian...
Evaluation of Error Mark-Up in a Learner Corpus of Czech
Štindlová, Barbora ; Šebesta, Karel (advisor) ; Petkevič, Vladimír (referee) ; Šindelářová, Jaromíra (referee)
Title: Evaluation of Error Mark-Up in a Learner Corpus of Czech Author: Barbora Štindlová Department: Institute of Czech Language and Theory of Communication, Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague Supervisor: prof. PhDr. Karel Šebesta, CSc. Abstract: The thesis deals with the topic of Czech as a second language, while introducing methods of corpus linguistics as applied to texts produced by language learners. The context is the process of building and exploiting a learner corpus, with a focus on its error mark-up and options for evaluating the annotation scheme. Learner corpora have become a major resource for investigating a learner interlanguage and a significant incentive for many different types of research and teaching of second/foreign languages. They are used mainly for contrastive studies of native and non-native speakers, i.e. for contrastive interlanguage analysis, and for computer-aided error analysis of the learner language. This kind of analysis is crucially dependent on the type and quality of the error mark-up. In every error-annotated corpus the error annotation is based on an error typology, which is necessarily problematic from a number of theoretical aspects. Evaluation of the reliability and validity of the annotation scheme design is therefore an important step in the build-up...

NÁZEV: Žákovské přezdívky jako součást školské jazykové komunikace AUTOR: School children's nicknames as a part of the school language communication KATEDRA: Katedra českého jazyka ŠKOLITEL: doc. PhDr. Martina Šmejkalová, Ph.D. ABSTRACT The research project deals with children's nicknames from the linguistic and linguodidactic point of view. Nicknames are verbal means of realization of the communication act of addressing and a manifestation of a specific communicative strategies in the classroom. A research of such kind has not yet been carried out in the Czech Republic. We used a questionnaire as a research method. The main research was carried out in two phases and its main purpose was 1.) description and characteristics of 562 nicknames of 8th grade primary school pupils and of the same age group pupils attending "gymnaziums" (eight-year grammar schools) focusing on the motivation of the origin of the nicknames; and 2.) detailed characteristics of 45 selected nicknames focusing on the functioning (perception and experience) in school language communication, from the perspective of the productor (a group where the nickname originated and where it is used), the recipient (a bearer of the nickname) and independent evaluators. Material analysis also allows partial conclusions about the quality of pupils'...
The Linguistic Picture of Death, Afterlife and Dying in Primary and Secondary School Pupils
Wildová, Zuzana ; Janovec, Ladislav (advisor) ; Pacovská, Jasňa (referee) ; Šindelářová, Jaromíra (referee)
The dissertation The Linguistic Picture of Death, Afterlife and Dying in Primary and Secondary School Pupils is devoted to the reconstruction of the linguistic picture of death in these groups of pupils, its mutual comparison and its comparison with the developed psychological concept of death. Furthermore, it describes how the taboo of this topic manifests itself in the pupils' linguistic picture of death and which modifications of the linguistic picture of the world are shown in the linguistic picture of death among pupils. In the first part, the dissertation deals with the concept of death in language and culture, and thus also with the linguistic and socio-cultural taboo of this phenomenon. We deal with the development of the conception of death in history and also the development of the concept of death of children and youth. The theoretical frame for this work is based on the methods of cognitive linguistics and its approach to linguistic research. We characterize this linguistic approach, its methods and the main representatives in the next part of the work. We use cognitive linguist methods not only for processing but also for collecting language data. In the third part, we analyze system, text and empirical language data. Textual data are derived from texts of intentional literature for...

Metaphorical patterns in onomastics recognizable by pupils and students
Štěpánová, Pavla ; Janovec, Ladislav (advisor) ; Šindelářová, Jaromíra (referee) ; Mitter, Patrik (referee)
This dissertation thesis deals with metaphorical patterns in a specific language material - names for partner (pet names) as recognizabled by pupils of age 14 to 16 and students of age 18 to 20. Names for partner, i. e. ways of mutual calling between a two people making a couple, were selected due to its strong metaphorical character. Their ambiguous affiliation with proper names, or common name enabled critical evaluation of structural and functional definition of proper names as well. Furthemore they enable to present a cognitive view on proper names especially based on emphasizing the conotative part of meaning and metaphorical nature of humans' thinking. The research was based on questionnaire divided into two parts and group and individual interviews with girls. The sufficient lexicological material gained due to the first part of questionnaire became a matter of metaphorical conceptualizations' analysis dealing with conceptualizations of partner (love). Thanks to the individual interviews the communication and pragmatic analysis of names for partner was performed. Second part of questionnaire and group interviews with girls enabled the detailed analysis of connotations and metaphorical perception of thirteen names intended for ladies. KEYWORDS metaphor, cognitive linguistics, onomastics,...
Effectiveness of the Creative Writing Method to Develop Writing Skills in Czech as Foreign/Second Language
Stárková, Zuzana ; Hájková, Eva (advisor) ; Šindelářová, Jaromíra (referee) ; Hrdlička, Milan (referee)
This dissertation concentrates on the development of writing skills in learners of Czech as a foreign/second language at A2-B2 levels. It aims to determine whether creative writing has positive influence on linguistic and discursive competence in acquiring Czech, as opposed to classic approaches. For these purposes, a probe was conducted in form of a one-semester qualitative action research. The sample consisted of 30 non-native University respondents. They were divided into two experimental and two control groups - with upmost regard to their comparability in terms of language levels, socio-linguistic parameters, the genres and topics assigned, as well as the number of lessons taught. In experimental groups, the writing skills was developed by the method of creative writing while the control groups were taught by means of traditional approach. After the semester, in case of experimental group I and control group I (at levels B1/B2), comparable increase in competences took place, therefore it can be concluded that the creative writing method may influence the development of the writing skills positively. In case of experimental group II and control group II (at levels A2/B1), the results are ambiguous. Nevertheless, the experimental groups̕ respondents had higher sureness in drafting.
