The expression of speaker's bias in Czech polar questions
Staňková, Anna ; Šimík, Radek (advisor) ; Chromý, Jan (referee)
This MA thesis focuses on Czech polar questions, especially on the description of their syn- tactic-semantic interface. Besides that, I discuss an additional layer of pragmatic meaning (i.e., bias), which expresses the speaker's expectations about the possible answers based on their beliefs or on their immediate context. The question's bias is signaled by a number of formal means: word order (interrogative vs. declarative), polarity (positive vs. negative question) and particles (e.g. copak). The interpretation of negation in polar questions is by no means trivial, as it gives rise to two types of reading: inner and outer. I propose explicit syntactic and semantic analyses of negative polar questions in Czech using the generative and formal semantic approach. To capture the difference between inner and outer negation, I use Repp's (2013) theory and the verum/falsum operators. I also propose a syntactic analysis of ver- bal movement to the initial position in Czech interrogative sentences. The thesis, therefore, aims to characterize how the formal means interact with the question's meaning (including bias). I ran a naturalness judgment task to empirically test the hypotheses based on previous accounts of polar questions and my own analyses. The experimental set-up consisted of mul- tiple parts...
Use of dynamic environments in the study of spatial memory
Staňková, Anna ; Svoboda, Jan (advisor) ; Vodička, Martin (referee)
Spatial memory allows movable organisms to orientate and stay therefore alive in an environment. At the beginning of previous century general rules of spatial memory were studied in static experimental conditions. Today's goal is to extend knowledge about its function also in dynamic environment. As a part of declarative memory, spatial memory depends on proper functionality of hippocampus. Hippocampus is considered to be centre of spatial memory not only because of spatial impairment when damaged, but also thanks to presence of place-specific neurons in several areas of hippocampus. In research of spatial memory experimental mazes are used with possibility to manipulate with orientation cues, maze itself and surrounding conditions. It is possible to make one-shot changes or continual changes. It could be rotation of cues and landmarks, transition of maze across the room, rotation of maze etc. Tasks in dynamic environment are more demanding on cognition and so spatial orientation, which makes them more sensitive to damages of spatial memory. This could be the way of using them as a diagnostic method in medicine.
English translation counterparts of the Czech construction "mít + participle"
Staňková, Anna ; Brůhová, Gabriela (advisor) ; Šebestová, Denisa (referee)
The BA thesis focuses on the Czech "mít" + -n/-t participle construction (e. g. "mít uvařeno/zakázáno"), its uses, and their English translation counterparts. English offers more than one equivalent for the Czech construction. This thesis, therefore, aims to demonstrate the variety of the possible counterparts. The construction is a means of expressing diathesis as it is described by Panevová et al. A diathesis uses specific syntactic and semantic structures to convey information, and its subject usually does not carry the agentive semantic role. The verb "mít" in diathesis acquires an auxiliary character. The analysis is based on 100 examples drawn from InterCorp. The instances of the Czech construction are categorized into three main groups: the possessive resultative (with its non-ambiguous and ambiguous variants), resultative localization, and the recipient passive. The thesis aims to identify their English counterparts and describe the prominent semantic and grammatical features of the translations. Keywords: diathesis, "mít", possessive resultative, recipient passive, translation counterpart, semantic role
