Hynková, Tereza ; Červinková Poesová, Kristýna (advisor) ; Malá, Markéta (referee)
The bachelor thesis examines the intonation of English cleft and pseudo-cleft sentences in the speech of advanced Czech ESL students. The aim of the thesis is to describe the tone choice in speech realisations of cleft and pseudo-cleft constructions produced by Czech ESL students. The first part scrutinizes literature and sets a theoretical framework for the small-scale research conducted in the second part of the thesis. The theoretical part describes the syntax of cleft and pseudo-cleft constructions, it focuses on the functional sentence perspective and provides basic information about intonation. In the second part, audio recordings are analysed in order to examine the Czech speakers' usage of tones when reading a meaningful conversation containing the target structures. It concludes that the falling tone is prevalent in the realisations of cleft sentences, whereas the productions of pseudo-clefts are more diverse. Moreover, the respondents are likely to realise three or more out of five cleft sentences using the same realisation type. They are likely to realize three or fewer out of five pseudo-cleft sentences using the same realisation type. The thesis sheds light on a marginal topic that is not popular among researchers. It compiles information on the intonation of clefts and pseudo-clefts...
