Approach to Phonetics in French Textbooks
Honzíčková, Lucie ; Nováková, Sylva (advisor) ; Bořek - Dohalská, Marie (referee)
This thesis deals with the changing role of phonetics in the history of teaching French as a foreign language. It provides a probe into the most significant methods of language teaching (the Grammar Translation Method, the Direct Method, the Audiolingual Method, the SGAV, Communicative Approach), including the current role of phonetics in teaching French. It also outlines a possible further development. The historical overview is then demonstrated on chosen French textbooks representing the individual methods, including a more detailed analysis of two contemporary textbooks. The analysis aims to provide information concerning the frequency of phonetic exercises, their focus, type and the use of phonetic transcription. Based on the theoretical background and the practical analysis, a list of inspiring approaches and techniques for current French teaching is made.

Navrátilová, Eliška ; Duběda, Tomáš (advisor) ; Bořek - Dohalská, Marie (referee)
Title: Approximants in a perception and production of Czech students Abstract: This work investigates the characteristics of three French approximants [j] - [] - [w]. First, they are analysed by historical, articulatory, and accoustic points of view. There is a brief summary of the problems and development of the terminology. We compare their appearance in French with their appearance in Czech. In the experimental part, there are studies of perception and of production by Czech students. We use an analysis of forms and of recordings in which we identify specific mistakes. Then, we look for the reasons for these mistakes in order to propose some solutions and ways to prevent them and, eventual-ly, check them. This thesis set up a compact system of activities and methods in receptive appropriation and active appropriation.

Kurková, Daniela ; Nováková, Sylva (advisor) ; Bořek - Dohalská, Marie (referee)
The study is concerned with the division of the French speech into rhythmic groups. The first part attempts to outline the theoretical background of the issue. The thesis is concerned with terms such as rhythmic groups, the French accent and the comparison between the French and the Czech phonetic system. The aim of the practical part of this paper is to find out to what extent Czech students of French at the Faculty of Education are able to use the phenomenon spontaneously in their speech with regard to the complete difference between the phonological rules of both languages. For reaching the aim of the paper several methodological procedures are employed. The first part which is concerned with theory books of both languages allows forming the hypothesis. Subsequently, the hypothesis is verified in quality-based research which examines the production of speech by Czech students. To analyze correctly the tested speech produced by Czech students, a comparison with speech recorded by French native speakers is used. The division into rhythmic groups and the correct use of accent are analyzed and evaluated in the final part. KEYWORDS Phonetics, Phonology, Rhythmic Groups, Accent, French
