Selected problems of interpretation of Czech estates inscribed on the World Heritage List
Kučera, Karel ; Indrová, Martina (advisor) ; Sládková, Kateřina (referee)
The presented diploma thesis deals with selected problems of monuments in the Czech Republic, which were listed on the prestigious World Heritage List by the end of the year 2022. In the first part of the diploma theses, a comprehensive search of existing Czech inscriptions and values for which they were awarded the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) is carried out. Management plans of individual sites (or other strategic and conceptual documents) are also researched and chapters dealing with education and presentation issues of the given sites are evaluated. In the second part, the thesis deals with the issues of interpretation and education of values for which estates are awarded the OUV. A research is carried out of how local management work with the term "outstanding universal value" in their interpretive, educational and presentation materials and if the criteria for which the monument is included on the World Heritage List are given adequate attention. And if so, whether they use methodological materials in the interpretation of values, or at least the principles defined in the International Council on Monuments and Sites Charter in the field of interpretation and presentation of cultural heritage sites - the ICOMOS charter. I also plan to check whether local museums and other institutions are...

Analytical verbo-nominal constructions in Václav Hájek's Czech chronicle (1541)
Martínek, František ; Adam, Robert (advisor) ; Kučera, Karel (referee)
In Chapters 1 and 2, the thesis delimits analytical verbo-nominal constructions (AVNS) based on the relevant literature. AVNS are phrases which consist of a verb with a general meaning, expressing categorical semantic features (e.g. state, change of state, and cause of change of state), and an abstract substantive: dát radu - to give advice, položit otázku - to ask a question, být v nesnázích - to be in a difficult situation. Phrases with a substantive in nominative case (jednání probíhá - the negotiation is proceeding) and with an adverb (dát najevo - to put forth) are also included in the AVNS classification. In Chapter 3, the phrases excerpted from a Middle Czech text of 1541 are classified according to their formal features and some groups of related phrases are also described. In Chapter 4, some models of AVNS-classification are critically evaluated and supplemented according to their semantic features. The excerpted phrases are classified using the following features: the state/action opposition, action phases, causativity, etc. In Chapter 5, the functions of AVNS in text are analyzed (e.g. as indicators that a given text is on a higher stylistic level). Overall, the thesis demonstrates that it is inadequate to consider AVNS as only a progressive feature of modern language. Appendices include lists of...
The Latin-Czech dictionary of Clementinum (general characteristics, verb translation analysis, edition)
Voleková, Kateřina ; Kučera, Karel (advisor) ; Andrlová Fidlerová, Alena (referee)
The Latin-Czech dictionary of Clementinum is presented in this study as a medieval work, on which creation participate two main ways of medieval literary production, imitatio and aemulatio (imitation and competition). These two ways show themselves above all in the structure of the dictionary, which is characterised by the following features: combining partial glossaries, ordered both by subject and in alphabetical order; the way of handling its sources; the dependence on its models; the method of translation. Apart from the general characteristics of the text, this study analyses the translation of the verbs in the verbal part of the dictionary, concentrating mainly on loans, calques and hapax legomena. It also includes an edition of the dictionary.
Peripheral Units of the Old Czech Lexical System: Retreating Units
Nejedlý, Petr ; Kučera, Karel (advisor) ; Pleskalová, Jana (referee) ; Komárek, Karel (referee)
Petr Nejedlý: Peripheral Units of the Old Czech Lexical System: Retreating Units (abstract of the thesis) The thesis deals with Old Czech lexical units retreating from the centre to periphery of the lexical system. It examines prerequisites of the process, i.e. loss of systemic relations of the lexical unit, and describes its individual forms (the extinction of a lexical unit in the last resort). The work submits an overview of both (intra)linguistic and extra-linguistic factors which are based on development of the lexical unit and influence its retreat to the periphery. Attention is paid to systemic changes in the language which modify internal relationships within the lexical system and also lead to the loss of central position of some lexical units.
The verb smět and its competitors in the corresponding modal meanings in contemporary Czech texts and Czech texts of 1550-1650

Early modern manuscripts in Czech museums and the possibilities of their utilization in the research of the 17th and 18th century Czech language and literature
Fidlerová, Alena ; Kučera, Karel (advisor) ; Kolár, Jaroslav (referee) ; Pleskalová, Jana (referee)
The thesis consists of two parts of different genre: the second part comprises that portion of the book FIDLEROVÁ, Alena; BEKEŠOVÁ, Martina, et al.: Inventory of the 17th and 18th Century Manuscripts from the Museum Collections in Bohemia (IInd part, volumes 1 and 2, Prague: Nakladatelství Karolinum, 2007), for which the author of the thesis is responsible (approximately 560 pages). It represents a practical example of how to treat and make accessible a great amount of manuscript source material in a way so that it could be successfully exploited by the scientists of different disciplines interested in early modern ages. Simultaneously, it is a part of the source basis for the first part of the thesis (the accompanying essay), which, nevertheless, dwells on the whole of the material encompassed in all the so far published parts of the Inventory. The accompanying essay has several goals: From the informative point of view it summarizes the content of the Inventory, i.e. which types of manuscripts does it comprise (according to the age of the manuscript, the language or languages used and the genre or subject matter) and tries to trace the causes of the findings. From the methodological point of view it discusses the problem, which methods should be chosen not only in the study of the early modern Czech...
Use of aorist, imperfect and perfect in Czech prose in the middle of the 14th century
Zdeňková, Jana ; Dittmann, Robert (advisor) ; Kučera, Karel (referee)
This thesis deals with the use of the aorist and imperfect tenses and the periphrastic preterite in four Old Czech prosaic translated texts dated back to the beginning of the 2nd half of the 14th century. Analyzed texts are the part of the first edition of the Old Czech translation of the Bible (part of the Dresden Bible completed with the text of Proroci rožmberští (Prophets of Rožmberk), the Legend of St. Wenceslaus from The Old Czech Passional, The Apocalypse of Paul and two chapters of the text O svatém Jeronýmovi knihy troje. We deal with the percentual occurence of the verb forms under investigation and with the aspectual characteristics of the verbs of which the investigated forms are constructed. Also their relationship to the Latin pretext is examined. The acquired results are presented in tables and graphs. This thesis also includes an electronic database of the investigated verbal forms.
Verbal Forms Expressing the Past in 14th-Century Czech
Zdeňková, Jana ; Dittmann, Robert (advisor) ; Kučera, Karel (referee) ; Zikánová, Šárka (referee)
Mgr. Jana Zdeňková Slovesné formy pro vyjádření minulosti v češtině 14. století Verbal Forms Expressing the Past in 14th-Century Czech Abstract The topic of the present dissertation is the use of verbal forms for expressing the past in 14th-century Czech. In this period, the Old Czech system of past tenses underwent far- reaching changes: the original Slavic periphrastic perfect was spreading into contexts typical for the past tense, and as a result, the simple past tenses, i.e. the aorist and the imperfect, were gradually disappearing. In the theoretical part of the thesis, we describe the Old Czech verbal forms for expressing the past tense meanings and discuss the ongoing changes not only within Old Czech proper but also in broader typological and areal perspectives. In the analytical part, we present results of a research into the use of past tenses in 14th-century Czech, based on our own collection of nearly four thousand examples from Old Czech texts. In the analysis, we focus on phenomena that testify to the ongoing language change. We deal with the functional distinction between the simple past tenses and the original periphrastic perfect, with specifics of recession of the aorists and imperfects, with distribution of past tenses in relation to the aspect and to certain semantic/functional...
