- Course objectives
- The exam always takes place during the exam period (June, September or January). It consists of two parts. 1. Master’s thesis defence in the form of a computer presentation in front of an examination board. 2. The second part of the state exam is oral and, similarly to the Master’s thesis defence, takes place in front of an examination board. The aim of the linguistic part of the B.A. state exam is to check good knowledge of present day Czech at all levels, as dealt with in the particular linguistic disciplines (phonetics, phonology, morphology, word formation, syntax, lexicology, stylistics). Other expected skills are knowledge in the particular terminology, orientation in linguistic methodology and practical knowledge of Standard Czech codification; knowledge of elementary facts about the development of Czech are also required. The main aim of the section focused on computational linguistics is to check the knowledge from the fields of informatics science, mathematics, statistics, logic and orientation in computer-based natural language processing.

Czech phonetics and phonology; phonetics, its contents and aims; phonological aspect of investigating communication processes; vocals and consonants and their allophones; sound segmentation of utterances; orthoepy, orthophony 2. morphology and word formation; parts of speech – their character and classification; verbal and nominal grammatical categories; main tendencies in Modern Czech declension and conjugation; semantic and formal changes during the process of word formation; categories and types in word formation; present day tendencies in word formation, morphematics 3. syntax: valence; sentence elements, expressional and functional characterization of sentence proposition hierarchization; syntactic relationships, ways and means of their realizations; classification of complex and compound sentences; functional sentence perspective; negation; nominal group 4. lexicology: delimitation of lexical units; naming processes in Czech; semasiology and onomasiology; lexical meaning; semantic relationships among lexical units (synonymy, oppositeness, hyperonymy hyponymy, polysemy); vocabulary, its layers, changes and development; present day Czech lexicography, typology of dictionaries 5. stylistics: classification of styles – various ways and criteria, functional styles, stylistic factors, elementary stylistic techniques, stylistic characterization of means of expression. 6. history of Czech from the Proto Slavonic period; Slavonic languages – a survey; Proto Slavonic, its temporal and territorial delimitation; dialectal splitting of Proto Slavonic; Old Church Slavonic; Old Czech phonology and morphology; analysis of elementary Old Czech texts 7. general theoretical topics: linguistics and its stratification, theory of signs; model of communication; basic language functions; classification of languages; language community; usage, norm, codification; structural and non-structural varieties of Czech; a survey of Czech dialects 8. significant personalities in the development of Czech linguistics 9. relevant scholarly sources (including significant periodicals) Topics relating to computational linguistics: 1.
