Abstrakt(y)
In a paper published in this journal (Bican 2006) I introduced readers to a linguistic approach developed by Jan W. F. Mulder and Sandor G. J. Hervey and known as Axiomatic Functionalism (henceforth: AF); I made a presentation of one of its components, the theory of sign. In this paper I want to continue with an exposition of the approach, focusing on another of its components: phonology. The structure of phonology in AF will be illustrated on a description of present standard Czech. It should be stressed that the following is an interpretation of the present writer which may differ from views of other axiomatic functionalists. Readers are encouraged to consult original works on phonology in AF (in particular Mulder 1968 and 1989).
Článek představuje fonologickou teorii lingvistické školy zvané axiomatický funkcionalismus a některé jeho analytické postupy při popisu zvukové stavby jazyků. Takovýto popis se skládá ze tří částí: 1) fonématiky zabývající se systémem fonémů a opozičními vztahy mezi nimi, 2) fonotaktiky, popisující distribuci fonémů uvnitř fonotaktických jednotek, a 3) para-fonotaktiky, která popisuje vztahy a rysy přesahující rámec fonotaktických jednotek (např. akcent, tóny nebo hraniční signály). Text je doplněn příklady fonologické analýzy češtiny.
