The Image of the Ottoman Empire and Turkey in Czech periodicals Národní listy and Čech in the early 1920s
Šťastník, Michael ; Malečková, Jitka (advisor) ; Kaas, Filip (referee)
This bachelor՚s thesis explores the portrayal of Turkey in Czech media, specifically in the newspapers Národní listy and Čech between 1922 and 1924. During this period, Turkey underwent significant political and social transformations, transitioning from the demise of the Ottoman Empire to the establishment of the modern Turkish Republic. The aim of this thesis is to examine how these events were reflected in the Czech press. Národní listy with its more liberal orientation and Čech, targeting to a Catholic and conservative readership, offer distinct perspectives on Turkish affairs. The thesis analyzes how these newspapers covered key events such as the Greco-Turkish War, the Lausanne Conference, and Mustafa Kemal՚s political ascent. It also compares the representation of these events in the Czech press with Turkish sources of that period, specifically the book Gazi Mustafa Kemal by Cahit Bürhan. Employing media content analysis, this work systematically examines the content of selected newspapers to identify potential patterns of bias or objectivity.
Roma In Turkey - the case of Sulukule
Gabčová, Lucie ; Kaas, Filip (advisor) ; Koláček, Jakub (referee)
The thesis focuses on the events in Istanbul's Sulukule quarter, which began in 2005, when the authorities ruling in Istanbul approved the revitalization project of Istanbul's Sulukule quarter in Fatih district. The oldest Roma quarter in Istanbul, dedicated to the local Roma according to legends already by Sultan Mehmed II. for helping in the conquest of the city, was a famous place where many went for music, dancing and entertainment. As a result of the revitalization project, several hundred families lost their homes and luxury houses were built on this place instead. The goal of the work is to map this project from its beginnings to 2010, to focus on how local residents were dealt with and what their options were to defend themselves against the project. The work places the project in Sulukul in the context of the phenomenon of kentsel dönüşüm, which is taking place throughout Turkey and which aims to revitalize residential areas, among other things, due to the impending earthquakes. However, this project mainly affects zones where investments do not flow in the long term and are inhabited by less well-off social groups that cannot effectively resist revitalization. The work will outline the history of the Roma community in Turkey and in Sulukule. The main contribution of the work will be the...

The Distribution of Ottoman and Öztürkçe Synonyms in Contemporary Turkish
Kožurková, Romana ; Láznička, Michal (advisor) ; Kaas, Filip (referee)
Thesis is dedicated to the manifestation of the Turkish language reform using the methods od corpus linguistics. Aim of the thesis is to find out for the selected pairs of original Ottoman words and their Turkish equivalents to what extent are both variant sused in contemporary Turkish texts and to assess if any of the pairs was not functionally differentiated and if the choice was influenced by any contextual factors. In the thesis, we examine the frequency of adjectives, whether one of the variants is more or less used; Ottoman variants are used more often. In the case of pairs, we examine the frequency and preference of variants in types of text, in most cases one variant is preferred in all types of text, but some of them were differentiated. In the case of the pair siyasal and siyasi, on 500 randomly generated sentences, we examine possessors and adjective suffixes in the sentence bound to the possessor, as well as adjectives with the suffix -sel and -i, which are not bound to it and are in the sentence. In the first case, in most cases, the suffixes are matching, in the second case, there suffixes are matching with the word siyasal, but not with the word siyasi. Key words Turkish language reform, corpus linguistics, adjective suffix -sel, adjective suffix -i, language purism
Tense-aspect-mood marking in Turkish: Case analysis of -ecek/-acak
Kaas, Filip ; Křivan, Jan (advisor) ; Láznička, Michal (referee)
The goal of the submitted paper is analysis of Turkish verbal morpheme -ecek/acak. This morpheme is described and classified by different scholars in various ways (as tense, aspect, or modality), language usage being used scarcely in the description. The presented thesis proposes to perform a corpus study on empirical data, that are interpreted by qualitative methods, and on this basis the author will propose new ways to describe the morpheme. From the methodological perspective will be used the analytical potential of Construction Grammar. The main goal of this paper is to summarize existing literature about this morpheme, evaluate the descriptive adequacy of the traditional description, and eventually suggest description, that would reflect its langauge usage. Secondary aim of this paper is discussion about grammaticography, and the status of descriptive categories vs. comparative concepts in linguistic practice. Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)

Huláková, Anna ; Kaas, Filip (advisor) ; Láznička, Michal (referee)
Unrestricted Abstract (in English): Subject of the proposed work is the analysis of means for expressing language attitudes in the corporate environment, the research specifically focuses on Turkish department of one of the international companies based in Prague. In addition to native speakers of Turkish, speakers of Azeri also work in this department. As both of these Turkic languages are to some extent intelligible, the contact of these languages occurs regularly both in work related and in regular communication between the employees of both nationalities. However, Turkish dominates both in terms of the number of speakers in the group and its prestige. The thesis examines language attitudes in this selected group, with emphasis on language phenomena that indicate dominance of one language over another. The work also evaluates the issue of data collection using so-called participatory observation. The work is based on ethnographic premises, during the research data were obtained using recordings and questionnaires, at the same time the research is based on available scientific literature.

Kaas, Filip ; Zemánek, Petr (advisor) ; Zikmundová, Veronika (referee)
The goal of the submitted thesis is creating an electronic corpus of Old Turkic Orkhon runiform inscriptions. Author will argue the choice of texts he made; the minimum volume of textual material will be at least 30 000 characters. Author will propose a model of data structure that will connect inscriptions with their electronic counterpart (including discussion of the following problems: encoding of runes, transliteration and transcription) and also various other levels of description. Author will propose solution for basic segmentation problems (on both sentence, word and morphosyntactic level). Pilot version of corpus will be made accessible and the whole procedure will be described in the text of the thesis.
