This thesis aims to characterize selected features of the Czech language used in the Czech-American weekly Našinec. The material basis consists of scans of ten issues from 1988. The opening chapters (1) focus on Czech emigration to the USA, specifically on the development of the Texas community and Texas Czech language, and are followed by a description of Czech-American press and its language in the second half of the twentieth century. The next part (2) describes the Našinec and its language in the linguistic research to date and then (3) details are given about the sample chosen for further analysis and criteria of selection of features chosen for the analysis (4). The main part (5-7) of the present BA thesis includes quantitative research into three phenomena which are well documented in the sample and at the same time seem to differ from the situation in the contemporary Czech language. These phenomena are: competition of the prepositions k/ke/ku, the infinitive ending and forms of the third person singular present tense of the verb být "to be". The state of affairs detected in Našinec was compared to the period linguistic manuals, studies and relevant language corpora. Generally the comparison confirmed differences from the situation in the contemporary Czech language and retention or even...

Impact of 14th century phonetic and phonological changes in progress on the Dresden Bible
Rozhkova, Anastasia ; Dittmann, Robert (advisor) ; Rejzek, Jiří (referee)
The thesis is devoted to the description of the projection of 14th century phonetic and phonological changes in progress onto the graphics of the Dresden Bible, one of the first copies of the oldest complete Old Czech translation of the Bible. For the research we chose three old Czech phonetic and phonological changes: diphthongization ó > uo (and an irregular change o > uo) and two Old Czech umlauts 'u > i (and 'ú > í) and 'o > ě (and 'ó > ie). The basis for the excerption were transliterated texts in the edition Staročeská Bible drážďanská a olomoucká. In our work we focus on the research of phonetic and phonological changes on the basis of the exact number of original and incoming forms in order to give a more accurate description of these changes and to verify the possible existence of statistically significant differences. For this purpose, the words excerpted were manually tagged and sorted out (using the COUNTIF and COUNTIFS statistical functions) in the Microsoft Excel 2007. Their statistical processing was carried out with the help of a statistical online calculator.

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.
