Paclíková, Marie ; Mareš, Petr (advisor) ; Andrlová Fidlerová, Alena (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with language and stylistic analysis of pastoral letters. The analyzed material consists of 40 pastoral letters from catholic clerics written between years 1990 and 2019. First chapter deals with delimitation of religious communication and religious style in Czech linguistic literature. After more detailed presentation of analyzed material follows analysis of pastoral letters with respect to use of morfological, lexical and syntactic means. The thesis also pays attention to use of metaphors which it considers from the viewpoint of cognitive linguistics and comparison of the style of pastoral letters with rhetorical style. The means of creating of intertextual relations and of establishing of opposite categories "we" and "they" in pastoral letters are explored as well. The last part of this thesis presents overall characterization of genre of pastoral letters with respect to their language and style based on the analysis of collected material.
Idiolect of Mrs. A. S. (1913-2010) from Varvarovka, Anapa Against the Background of Czech Emigrant Dialects in Krasnodar Krai, Russian federation
Jelínková, Klára ; Skorvid, Sergej (advisor) ; Andrlová Fidlerová, Alena (referee)
This thesis considers linguistic phenomena obtained from audio recordings of Ms. A. S., who lived in an indigenous Czech village in the North Caucasus. The speaker is a granddaughter of native Czech colonists, who inhabited the Black Sea area of the Caucasus in the second half of the 19th century. The first part of the thesis considers in brief the history of Czech emigration to the former Tsarist Russia, focusing on the Caucasus and the villages that the informant comes from. The second part of the thesis, then, maps dominant and specific phenomena that occur in the recording. A connection is drawn between the phenomena listed and other studies of Novorossyisk-Anapa variety of the Czech language, as well as other studies of dialectal variation in Russia and the situation of these phenomena in the Southwestern-Bohemian dialect, as that is the dialect which this variety of the Czech language derives from. Since a considerable part of the recording consists of Ms. A. S.'s daughter and granddaughter speaking, examples of their speech are also included in the thesis, or intergenerational comparison of the phenomena is drawn. Keywords: a Czech language island, dialectology, Russia, the Caucasus, Anapa, influence of Russian, Southwestern-Bohemian dialect group
Topoi in Critical Discourse Analysis
Preininger, Mikuláš ; Lehečková, Eva (advisor) ; Andrlová Fidlerová, Alena (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to explore, how critical discourse analysis, namely Discourse- Historical Approach (DHA), analyses argumentation strategies and how it uses the concept of topos. The main task of DHA is to grasp how socially problematic phenomena (e. g. discrimination) spread and based on this knowledge it aims to suggest ways to tackle them (e. g. defining correct and fallacious argumentation practices). In this way, DHA embraces both descriptive and normative approach. As a key analytical tool for describing and assessing argumentation, DHA uses the concept of topos. According to DHA, topos is a scheme which connects arguments with conclusions (e. g. the topos of authority, working in a sense we perform action x because subject y suggests so). The advantage of topos is the fact that, on the one hand, compared to arguments, it is more general, on the other hand, compared to abstract logical rules, it is more related to the content of argumentation. As such, it provides a useful tool for exploring typified manners of argumentation and persuasion. The way DHA analyses argumentation strategies and topoi, however, became a subject of criticism. First, it concerns the fact that argumentation analysis in DHA often lacks method and transparency (Žagar 2010). Second, it concerns the fact that...

Abstract The traditional view describing Czech literary works written in the period from the late 17th century to the end of 18th century as signs of decline in the level of Czech language and literature has been successfully overcome by linguists over the past few decades. However, most papers covering the topic were focused on prints; handwritten sources are being analysed marginally and unsystematically. The aim of this dissertation is to provide a more...
Graphical and Phonological Analysis of Songs by Valentin Šubar: the Perspective of Vowel Length
Böhmová, Veronika ; Andrlová Fidlerová, Alena (advisor) ; Dittmann, Robert (referee)
The thesis analyzes the non-standard vowel length and shortness in the complete hymn book of Valentin Šubar, as it is presented in the edition published by the Utraquist Jiří Hanuš of Kronenfeld in 1612 (Knihopis K16012). Based on selected transliterated segments, the level of consistency in the marking of vowel quantity is identified, and the outcome is subsequently taken into account when interpreting individual non-standard forms. Consequently, the results of previous research on vowel length marking in the 17th century Czech prints are slightly modified and the incorrect datation of surviving exemplars of the hymn book is corrected.
Adaptation of Proper Nouns in Czech-American Periodicals at the End of the 19th Century
Burdová, Kateřina ; Dittmann, Robert (advisor) ; Andrlová Fidlerová, Alena (referee)
The bachelor's thesis focuses on the process of the adaptation of proper nouns in chosen periodicals of the end of the 19th century that were published in the USA by Czech immigrants. Based on the analysis of periodicals collected from the Library of the Naprstek Museum of Prague originated a list of proper nouns that has been studied from various points of view, namely the phonetics, morphology including the word-class competition (Cedar Rapidský - Cedar Rapids) and syntax, translated and non-translated forms (Nová Praha - New Prague). In terms of proper nouns toponymical and antoponymical pertinence has been taken into account. Besides the research of the adaptation of proper nouns itself, the thesis also sums up the existing findings on the Czech-American periodicals and the processes of adaptation of proper nouns in Czech-American interference.
The process of forming a song canon in 17th and 18th century hand-written hymn-books
Smyčková, Kateřina ; Škarpová, Marie (advisor) ; Malura, Jan (referee) ; Andrlová Fidlerová, Alena (referee)
This dissertation thesis follows on the contemporary research focused on the early modern manuscript culture. The thesis deals with the Moravian manuscript hymnals from the 17th and 18th century and with their repertoire. The manuscript hymnography is one of the richest sources for an understanding of the popular piety, the Baroque literature and the church music. Some of the hymnals are accompanied by musical notation and a large number of them are beautiful illuminated. However, they have never been made accessible through modern edition, and there are hardly any analytical studies concerning these hymnbooks. The opening chapter summarizes the existing research on the given topic. It is followed by the description of approximately forty manuscript hymnals. The next chapter concentrates on some specific qualities of the manuscript publication and focuses on the song repertoire. The third chapter further develops the general theses. It is devoted to four manuscript hymnals from the sixties and the seventies of the 17th century. The analysis of their writing, ilumination and repertoire proves the same author - Jan Klabík from Želechovice. This chapter concentrates on the song repertoire, relations to older hymnals and the song canon. The fourth chapter focuses on two specific groups of songs: the...
