This paper attempts to answer the following research question: Is the un/stressed pronunciation of the Czech words no and jo related to the word’s functions and meanings? To answer this question, I analyze a guest interview from the Czech late-night talk show Uvolněte se, prosím, which is part of the DIALOG corpus (duration of the dialogue: 18 minutes). The analysis reveals that the stressed pronunciation prevails in both cases. The analysis points to individual speech styles, e.g. the host of the interview pronounces no as an unstressed word when no functions as a preparatory particle.
