Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper mainly focuses on the commitment of some Prague Linguistic Circle members (Mathesius, Havránek, Jakobson, Weingart, Mukařovský) during the years between the Two World Wars. The author particularly draws attention to their reactions to the purists’ aggressive views published in the review Našeřeč and to the “1932 theses” (the principles according to which language should have been treated) they formulated in addition.
