VOWEL CHANGES IN THE SIX-VOLUME KRALICE BIBLE. PART I: THE SCOPE OF CHANGES PREDATING THE OLD CZECH DIPHTHONGIZATIONS
Languages of publication
The contribution explores how vowel changes carried out from the 10th to the end of the 14th century affected the Six-Volume Kralice Bible (1579‒1594). Leaving aside the problem of vowel quantity, the author follows the changes embracing the methodological view of registering differences in the Six-Volume Kralice Bible as compared to the Present-Day Standard Czech. To a certain degree the Kralice Bible tends to keep the older stage of development of vocalism which is reflected in case of pre-historical changes such as yers and their substitutes as well as in case of results of Old Czech changes such as ’ä > ě, ’a̋ > ie. The contribution shows in detail the extent to which these changes were employed in the Six-Volume Kralice Bible and thus it helps to arrive at a more detailed description of the Kralice Bible style recognized generally as an authority and model for the centuries to come.
