Czech in Formal Grammar

Mojmír Dočekal & Markéta Ziková
Masaryk University

This book is comprised of papers from the conference Czech in Formal Grammar, whose first meeting was held on February 12-14, 2009, at Masaryk University in Brno. The programme of the conference was constituted on the basis of anonymously reviewed abstracts. It consisted of 23 papers and 3 invited talks focused on topics from phonology (Tobias Scheer), syntax (Ludmila Veselovská and Petr Karlík) and semantics (Hana Filip). 18 papers of those presented at the conference appear in their revised and edited versions in this volume.

Every paper in this book presents an original and vital contribution to Slavic linguistics. The material is mainly Czech but a contrastive background, in which Czech is investigated, consists of many Indo-European languages. The fields of research extend from traditional generative grammar domains such as phonology, syntax and semantics to corpus linguistic studies and acquisition of language by children. But there is a common denominator of all the articles presented in the volume and that is respect for formal methods in linguistics. The book is certainly a valuable addition to the bookshelf of everyone interested in Czech, Slavic languages and linguistics generally.
