On historical parallels and contacts between Hungarian and Czech linguistic projects
Languages of publication
The joint project of Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest and the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague Computational Lexicology and Dialogue Research has inspired not only specific approaches to new linguistic research, but has also directed attention toward the history of Hungarian and Czech linguistic description. Some previously hidden parallels in lexicography, grammar and corpus projects have been discovered and discussed. In this paper, an overview of main similarities in the phases of cultivation of these two languages reveals, among others, the important unifying role of the European style of education and scholarly work. In addition, a brief historical outline shows Czech and Hungarian as the subject of linguistic research with similar positions and as solving their specific problems in historical parallels. This information enables the depiction of new projects in corpus linguistics in a broader historical context.
