Chapter
This study is devoted to the word order of the short pronominal forms mi, sě, tě ‘me.dat, refl. acc, you.acc’ dependent on a finite verb in the 1st edition of the Old Czech Bible. The forms studied - permanent enclitics in modern Czech - are numerous enough so that their analysis is possible (unlike other pronominal enclitic forms, i.e., si, ti, ho...
Article
The paper focuses on dynamics of changes of several linguistic and text properties in diachronic development of Czech. Specifically, we analyze the proportion of identical word-forms (types), the average type length, text length, the proportion of hapax legomena, the moving average type-token ratio, and entropy. For the analysis, seven translations...

The paper deals with two important questions in linguistic research: 1) What do we actually model when we model language usage? and 2) What is an appropriate sample or ‘text unit’ for the analysis of language usage? In the beginning, we critically discuss several approaches to the analysis of language behaviour. Then, we introduce the most importan...

The paper focuses on analyzing the relationship among word order positions of pronominal enclitics in the history of Czech. Specifically, we look at the Wackernagel’s position and the contact position and we try to decide whether these two positions compete, as usually taken for granted, or whether there is a certain kind of cooperation between the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The paper is focused on the analysis of the relationship between the full valency of the predicate and the position of enclitics in the clause. For this analysis, ones of the oldest Old Czech prose texts were used. We set up the hypothesis - the higher the full valency of the predicate, the lower the probability of the occurrence of the enclitic af...

The presented study deals with the historical development of Czech (en)clitics (AuxP). Based on the data from the previous research (Kosek 2015a,b, 2017), it focuses on the development of one group the Czech (en)clitics – on the preterite auxiliary forms.

The aim of the paper is to analyze word-order positions of preterite auxiliary forms (AuxP) in the Old Czech prosaic texts from the 14th and 15th centuries, e. g. in Pasionál (‘Passional’), in Život Krista Pána (‘Life of Christ the Lord’), in Životy sv.

Article
The language of the new hymns collected in Jeslicky by Fridrich Bridelius draws on the tradition of the highly developed Czech language of the late 16th century. This is clearly visible in the range of effects produced by the sound shifts experienced by Czech during the Early Modern era, enabling a degree of stylistic differentiation (y > ej, u- >...

Article
Having analysed selected Baroque texts (mostly fiction), grammar books and dictionaries, I found that in the Baroque Czech there are the following expressions usually called intensifying / gradational by traditional Czech syntactic theories. I) Conjunctions: 1. Simple (i.e. consisting of only one part; "jednodílné") ano, ba; anobrž, nýbrž (rarely h...

Project
The aim of the project is to create tools contributing to preservation, scholarly registration, presentation and accessibility of broadside ballads. In the centre of the attention are funds in Moravian Library in Brno, in the Brno’s department of the Institute of Ethnology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v. v. i., and in Ethnographic Institute in Moravian Museum. In total the funds contain about 17 000 broadside ballads from the period of the 17th to 19th century. The instrument to achieve mentioned goals is the methodology for the creation of bibliographic records of broadside ballads, which will be possible to be used by other institutions managing artefacts of similar type, and the preparation of the broad-based exhibitions, which will present broadside ballads from the collections of institutions in Brno as a specific type of cultural heritage. The presentation on the user-friendly level will be guaranteed also by the specialized map, focused on the presentation of the regionally-geographic origin of the collections. Involvement of researchers from different fields allows to present the broadside ballads in the complex way, with emphasis on the textual, musical and also visual side. Broadside ballads are unique artefacts, genre and thematically various. It is possible to demonstrate on them the understanding of the contemporary mentality (sacred discourse and profane interests of the recipient in the researched period) and their significance for preservation of continuity of the standard language in the period between the Baroque epoch and the National revival period. Among other outcomes of the project are several monographs of interdisciplinary character, conference and workshop concerning the problematic of broadside ballads. Above mentioned will be presented as the outcomes of the team of experts from different fields.

The hymn-book of F. Bridelius Jesličky (1658) is a key historical source for several fields of study affected by hymnological research (literary history, linguistics, music history, and indirectly also ethnology, history, theology, etc.). However, no fully interdisciplinary approach has yet been applied to Czech Baroque hymnography. For this reason, the output of the project will be the first edition representing the Bohemian Baroque hymn-book in all three of its key dimensions (literary-historical, music-historical, and linguistic). The preparation of an academic edition (based on thorough interdisciplinary analysis of sources and taking into account the relevant historical context), will be inextricably linked with the formulation of interdisciplinary editorial principles. The edition is also viewed as a pilot project for more demanding editorial work on the Czech Early Modern hymnals.
