Summary

Cílem přednášek je podat informace o základních pojmech stylistiky, metodách stylistického výzkumu, subjektivních i objektivních stylotvorných faktorech, a to především se zřetelem na stylovou oblast žurnalistickou. Na ni je soustředěna také klasifikace výrazových prostředků stylistického ztvárnění textu v rovinách hláskové, morfologické, syntaktické, lexikální i textové zároveň s přihlédnutím k mimojazykovým (nonverbálním, grafickým) výrazovým prostředkům. Pozornost je rovněž věnována kompozici textů, jejich tektonice i architektonice. V průběhu cvičení se studenti učí jednak kritické analýze výše uvedených textů, jednak srovnávání odborných názorů na sledovanou problematiku. Důraz je kladen na tvůrčí využívání dosavadních vědomostí z lingvistických disciplín při kritické analýze modelových textů.
