Czech Linguists on th e Hungarian Language: A Thematic Overview
Languages of publication
The article offers a survey as comprehensive and systematic as possible of all the articles and papers dealing with the Hungarian language written by Czech linguists. It concludes that very little attention has been paid to this topic in Czech linguistics and that the number of papers dedicated to Hungarian itself is very low. The majority of these papers deal with topics such as language contact (etymology, areal linguistics of the Central European Sprachbund, onomastics, the sociolinguistic situation of the Hungarian minority in the Czech Republic) or language comparison (typology). Only a few linguists have dealt with Hungarian to a relatively larger extent: Vladimír Skalička (language typology), Zoe Hauptová (etymology, Hungarian loanwords in Slovak), Vladimír Šmilauer (etymology, onomastics), Rudolf Forstinger (onomastics, etymology), František Kopečný (etymology, morphosyntax), Jiří Pilarský (the Central European Sprachbund, Hungarian‑ German contrastive linguistics), Lucie Jílková (sociolinguistics), Evžen Gál (Hungarian‑ Czech contrastive lexicology, sociolinguistics), Julius Bredár (etymology), Josef Blaskovics (etymology, Turkish loanwords in Hungarian), and Richard Pražák (Dobrovský as Hungarist and Finno‑Ugrist, the typology of national revivals in Central and Eastern Europe).
