Prefixes and prefixoids of Latin and Greek origin as a prerequisite for understanding foreign words in four-year grammar school students
Králová, Eliška ; Janovec, Ladislav (advisor) ; Šindelářová, Jaromíra (referee) ; Mitter, Patrik (referee)
Classical languages - Latin and Greek - have been influencing the vocabulary of the Czech language throughout its independent development. Both languages contribute to the process of creating new words to a large extent even today. This does not apply only to terminologies of various scientific fields but also to the naming of phenomena and facts of our everyday life. In connection with globalization and the general effort for language internationalization, classical languages, thanks to their flexibility and ability to link with domestic and foreign word-forming components, are very intensively involved in neology. The aim of this dissertation is to demonstrate how high the level of understanding of word-forming components from Latin and Greek is shown by students in the 1st and 4th year of the four-year general grammar school, and to what extent possible unfamiliarity prevents them from a correct understanding of similarly formed expressions. The tool for determining the scope of knowledge among students was a didactic test administered at five four-year grammar schools in the Czech Republic, and every time, for comparison, in all parallels of the 1st and 4th year. The results of the research may help to improve the didactic processing of the curriculum in Czech language classes, and to enhance...
Critical issues in Czech language teaching at lower secondary education
Baloušová, Lucie ; Janovec, Ladislav (advisor) ; Pacovská, Jasňa (referee) ; Škodová, Svatava (referee)
The dissertation focuses on critical aspects of teaching syntax in the 7th grade of primary school. The topic of didactic processing of syntax has resonated among linguodidactics and teachers for years. A primary reason for focusing on syntax teaching is the absence of research and more comprehensive handling of critical teaching points in syntactic education. The current trend in Czech language didactics is aimed at developing students' communicative competence, enabling them to make conscious choices of linguistic resources to achieve their communicative intent. This choice should be appropriate for the communication situation. Therefore, our dissertation research focused on teaching syntax, which plays a key role in this aspect. Through experimental research, we observed Czech language lessons (specifically syntax lessons) at various Prague primary schools, made audio recordings of these lessons, and took field notes. Considering the second semester of the 7th grade and the topics taught according to the available educational programs, we obtained a balanced material that included lessons on sentence members and subordinate clauses. The research also included an analysis of curricular materials and textbooks, focusing on the communicative aspect. The collected research material was then...

Cinkrautová, Karolína ; Janovec, Ladislav (advisor) ; Pacovská, Jasňa (referee) ; Saicová Římalová, Lucie (referee)
The topic of the dissertation is the concept of ÚSPĚCH ("SUCCESS)" in the linguistic picture of the world of Czech students. We consider the research aimed at a deeper understanding of the linguistic picture of the world of children and youth to be highly topical, which corresponds to the current trends in the field of linguistics and didactics. Theoretically and methodologically, it is based on cognitive linguistics and Polish ethnolinguistics, linguistic disciplines focused on the research of the relationship between language and culture, which work with the concept of a linguistic picture of the world. The thesis also draws on American cognitive linguistics, which studies the theory of conceptual metaphor, as well as Czech and foreign didactic applications of the theoretical foundations of cognitive linguistics. The thesis aims to reconstruct the linguistic picture of ÚSPĚCH ("SUCCESS") in a specific group of Czech native speakers - lower secondary and upper secondary school students. The analysis of dictionary, textual and empirical data obtained through a specifically designed questionnaire led to the construction of a cognitive definition of ÚSPĚCH ("SUCCESS") and the reconstruction of the stereotype of a successful person on the basis of semantic aspects (profiles) and metaphors through...
