Contributions are included which have escaped attention on an international scale because they were published in Czech; several papers have been written especially for this volume. the contributions cover various domains: syntax, morphology, sociolinguistics, graphemics, the language system, the lexicon, and contrastive linguistics. Contributions by: E. Pauliny, M. Dokulil and F Dane, R. Trost, V. Skalicka, J. Ruzicka, F. Miko, O. Leska, J. Vachek, J. Horeck}, V. Blanar, P. Sgall, V. Barnet, V. Barnetova.
