Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture offers a linguistic overview of the development of Czech and Slovak. The Czech language is presented on different language levels from early Czech to the beginning of modern Czech with special emphasis on Old and Middle Czech. In the Slovak language area, the Central Slovak dialects already differed significantly from the other Slovak language areas and the Czech language at the time of the separation of the Proto-Czech and Slovak language group. The slow integration of all three Slovak dialectal areas began in the Middle Ages. The central Slovak dialect became the basis for the constitution of the Slovak standard language in the middle of the 19th century. The lecture thus also offers a linguistic overview of the different developments of Slovak up to its standardization.
Lectures introduce students to the main areas of the field of study. It is especially their task to deal with the most important facts and doctrines in the field and to discuss the current state of scientific research. They consist of lectures by the lecturer as well as other forms of presentation.
