NOTES ON THE POSSIBILITY OF RECORDING VARIANTS
Languages of publication
In this article the authors consider an important instrument of textual criticism – namely, variant reading, the comparison of individual versions of a text. The authors compare the means of recording variant readings, based on lemmata and synopsis. In a brief historical overview they explain why in the Czech Republic the lemmatized forms are the most widespread, even though other kinds were also used to some extent. The authors point out its advantages and shortcomings, the latter of which they see mainly in its failure to record all the necessary information. They consider the synoptic kind to be more suitable for literary scholars because it can record practically all the variants of a text.
