The article deals with the Czech pronunciation of the river name Nisa, an important river in Northern Bohemia. Besides standard palatalized pronunciation [ňisa], also non-standard non-palatalized pronunciation [nisa] occurs. The main goal of the article is to describe their mutual relation and their distribution. The data come from a) questionnaires, and b) an analysis of chosen Czech Radio (Český rozhlas) programs. The analysis of radio programs was based on a demo version of the platform being developed for automatic transcription and sophisticated access to historical audio archive of the Czech Radio. Palatalized, i.e. standard pronunciation is dominant in broadcasting. Questionnaires show that non-pala-talized pronunciation occurs in local every-day speech, especially among people over 30 years. It is therefore a question, whether this pronunciation should be included into the standardization as a local, colloquial variant.
