Manifestation of Deflectivization in Contemporary Czech - The Tendency Not to Inflect Some First Names in Connection With Surnames
Kripnerová, Nella ; Sojka, Pavel (advisor) ; Adam, Robert (referee)
This thesis deals with the issue of deflectivization in contemporary Czech, specifically the tendency not to inflect some first names in connection with surnames. The theoretical part focuses on the dynamics of the development of contemporary Czech, explains the concepts of norm and codification, describes variant forms in the language and clarifies the causes of language changes. He then defines a relatively new tendency - deflectivization and gives some specific examples of it. In connection with the non-declension of some names, it clarifies how such names should be inflected. The aim of the practical part is to compare the results of the questionnaire survey, which aims to find out to what extent deflectivization tendencies manifest themselves in the Czech population, with the results reported in the CNK and to evaluate whether or not there is a tendency to inflect these names prevailing. KEYWORDS Development tendencies of contemporary language, variation, language norm, codification, deflectivization, declension, first name, surname

Comparison of the most frequent lemmas in written and spoken Czech
Špetová, Leona ; Kováříková, Dominika (advisor) ; Adam, Robert (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the 20 most frequent lemmas in the SYN2020 corpus of written Czech and the ORAL corpus of informal spoken Czech. The aim of this thesis is to find out what functions and meanings studied lemmas have and, above all, to investigate whether these meanings and functions differ in spoken and written communication. The data for the research were extracted from the SYN2020 corpus of written Czech and the ORAL corpus of informal spoken Czech. A semantic analysis of the lemmas is based on a random sample from both corpora. The results of the comparison of the 20 most frequent lemmas in the written and spoken corpora show that the most frequent lemmas in both corpora are expressions with a grammatical function, which are involved in the construction and organization of the text. These lemmas often have multiple meanings. The analysis shows that the most frequent expressions in the SYN2020 corpus are prepositions and conjunctions and in the ORAL corpus pronouns and deictic expressions. The most frequent expressions in the ORAL corpus often also have a pragmatic function. These expressions can be described as discourse markers. By comparing the most frequent lemmas we can observe different characteristics of written and spoken communication.
Antonymy in adjectives
Chomyková, Gabriela ; Kováříková, Dominika (advisor) ; Adam, Robert (referee)
The aim of the diploma thesis is to describe how selected frequent adjective negative antonyms are used. The thesis analyses adjectival antonyms that express two main negative meanings, namely the meaning of simple denial of the base word content of (e.g. invalid) and the meaning of contrasting opposite to the base word content (e.g. unfortunate). These meanings are observed with regard to the logical concepts of contradiction and contrariety, and to the oppositeness of meanings and distinction between subjective and objective concepts. The data source is SYN2020 corpus, in which negative antonyms meeting the criteria of high frequency and low polysemy were searched. Their meaning was determined according to collocations and compared with the characteristics of affirmative variants. Based on the research, it can be stated that there is a wide variability in the use of these antonyms. At the same time, it was found that the meaning of the simple denial is often determined by the terminological nature of an expression. Key words: antonymy, antonymous adjectives, lexical negative, contradiction, contrariety
Language comprehension of mathematical word problems
Chmelařová, Nikola ; Šormová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Adam, Robert (referee)
In order to solve mathematical word problem, student have to understand it correctly first. In this work, we will try to find particular problematic parts in terms of language comprehension in word problems. The theoretical part of the theses shows connection between mathematical and reading literacy, defines the term word problem and offers various types of word problems, describes individual parts of solving word problems and points out possible problems associated with solving word problems. Furthermore, it is devoted to language characteristics of word problems on various levels, such as textual and contextual, syntactic, lexical and morphological, and points out potentially problematic language phenomena that could occur in a text of a word problem. In the practical part we analyzed the language of selected word problems from entrance exams for eight-year and four-year high schools and graduation written tests and subsequently we tested these word problems on students of elementary school and high school. The analysis of the word problems and the tests combined with interviews helped us detect problematics parts in terms of language comprehension. We found as problematic the length of the text combined with complicated text division and long sentences, the length of sentences combined with...

Morphological and syntactic characteristics of expression sto (hundred), tisíc (thousand), milion (milion) and miliarda (bilion)
Nováková, Anna Josefína ; Adam, Robert (advisor) ; Šimík, Radek (referee)
The presented thesis aims to provide an analysis of morphological and syntactical characteristics of expressions sto "a hundred", tisíc "a thousand", milion "a million" and miliarda "a billion". The first part deals with the description and characteristics of numerals in specialized literature, with focus on the explored expressions, and it then proceeds to define the research questions (e. g. to what extent are the forms frozen; forms of the noun denoting the counted object (JPP) etc.), which are then explored in the practical part, using corpus analysis. The data used in the analysis are taken from the SYN v8, ORAL v1 and ORTOFON v2 corpus. The analysed sample contains 1 000 of the sto lemmas and the same number of the tisíc lemmas. For the expressions milion and miliarda, the analysed sample was half as large. The analysis showed that the range of numeral and substantive characteristics of the expressions varies: the expression sto "a hundred", has the most prominent numeral characteristics: a high degree of constancy of form (e.g., do sta korun "within one hundred crowns", do sto čtyřiceti mil "within one hundred and forty miles", na dvě stě kilometrech "at two hundred kilometres"), a predominant adjectival congruence of numeral (e.g., bylo tam osm set lidí "there were eight hundred people")...

The contents of the theoretical part are history of the origins of surnames, views on inflection in the past and also opinions of contemporary experts regarding this subject. It analyses arguments both in favour of and opposing gender inflection. It covers changes in legislation which currently deal with this issue, their development in the past and comparison with legislations of other European countries. Included in the theoretical part are also the rules that apply to gender inflection of surnames. The empirical part is based on research, which was concluded using an electronic questionnaire. Its goal was to find out what are the respondent's preferences regarding gender inflected female surnames and gender neutral female surnames, as well as how tolerant they are towards the surname forms they don't prefer. This research applied to both Czech female surnames and foreign ones. Through the questionnaire it turned out that the respondents are relatively tolerant to gender neutral female surnames, while in their preferences they are quite conservative. The vast majority prefers the use of a gender inflected surname, after marriage they favour women using the husband's gender inflected surname....
