Slova v soukromých dopisech
Title in English: Words in private letters: a probe into lexicography
Private letters belong to texts most interesting from the linguistic point of view, one of their very interesting features being a high concentration of marked vocabulary (bookish, nonstandard, emotional, occasional items). The book presents a dictionary of marked vocabulary gathered from the correspondence of young people at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries. The basis of this dictionary is a selection of letters from the corpus of correspondence written by hand (KSK-dopisy), which is a part of the Czech National Corpus. As this is a pioneering work in the context of Czech linguistics, focused on lexicographical processing of correspondence, the work is intended especially as a theoretical and methodological probe that might become a starting point for future lexicographical reflection of this material, so attractive from the linguistic point of view.
