Greenwashing in the language of advertising
Pimperová, Žofie ; Lobenstein-Reichmann, Anja (advisor) ; Bučková, Tamara (referee)
Today, environmental protection and sustainability issues are also becoming increasingly important as climate change progresses rapidly. With this, the number of companies claiming to be environmentally friendly and doing something for the climate is growing. They present their commitments in sustainability reports, paint their brands green and invest in advertising portraying them as great fighters against climate change. When these statements are false, such advertising can be described as greenwashing. But it can be hard to spot. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to analyze the linguistic devices in advertising related to the topic of sustainability and to find out which ones are repeated. First, the language of advertising and greenwashing will be introduced, then the methods of analysis, and, finally, individual examples of advertisements will be characterized and analyzed. Certain keywords, metaphors, syntax and corpus will be considered in the analysis. The work of Nina Janich, Peter Grice or Armin Burkhardt will also be used as a starting point for the analysis. Finally, the advertising posters, videos or other advertising texts of specific companies (IKEA, RWE, C&A, Shell, DB, REWE and Frosch) will be critically examined and compared with other climate promises of the companies in...

The image of death, dying and mourning in modern German-language literature for children and adolescents, using the example of selected picture books
Vorlová, Kateřina ; Markvartová, Eva (advisor) ; Bučková, Tamara (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on the theme of death, dying and grief in modern German picture books. The theoretical basis of this thesis is, in addition to the chapter on death, its concept in literature, the children's world and theology, a chapter on picture books and the afterlife from the perspective of world religions. In the practical part, selected works are interpreted and compared with each other based on their content. The aim of the thesis is to prove that death has never been a taboo subject in children's literature, but on the contrary, a rich subject, which is popularly depicted. Among other things, the thesis shows that each narrator and protagonist views death in a slightly different way, treats and evaluates it differently. Nevertheless, the final reconciliation is thematized in all texts. KEYWORDS Death, dying, literature, children, adolescents, consolation, sorrow, picture books
