This paper recalls difficulties in the functional and social stratification of Czech and the codification of its literary norm. These difficulties make it necessary to discuss the possibility of a transition from the current post-purist viewpoint to a more realistic and liberal one. The point is to abandon the unavailing efforts at a sharp specification of 'literary' morphemic forms and to aim for an approach which works with a gradual division of standard and non-standard phenomena, viewed as a rich cline of functionally diversified forms. This theoretical approach may reveal that informal discourse in Czech also has its standard even though it includes frequent oscillation between items from different registers. It is a substantial task to apply this approach in education, where bookish forms are still currently required in communicative situations for which bookish style is inappropriate.
