Nářečí v českém překladu Falletova románu La soupe aux choux (Zelňačka)
Dialects in the Czech Translation of Fallet’s La Soupe aux choux
Languages of publication
In translating the novel La Soupe aux choux (Cabbage Soup) into Czech (as Zelňačka), the main problem seems to lie in the creation of an adequate equivalent of the stylized speech of the French villagers from the Bourbon area. A traditional territorial dialect (above all from Moravia or Silesia) would imply a false location, therefore it proved useful to primarily combine language means belonging to multiple sub-groups of the so-called Czech dialects in the narrower sense, and to supplement this base with some less current elements (e.g. from Moravian dialects).
