Final papers

Regarding the choice of the topic of your BA theses - I believe the best option is when you have some idea about what you are interested in, what you would like to write about. You are not expected to come to me with a "ready title". I will be more than happy to discuss your ideas with you, help you to narrow or adjust the topic. I would mainly welcome topics from the area of English Morphology and Lexicology which would be dealt with just within English or as a comparative study. A few topics suggested below are intended mainly as a source of inspiration:

Collective nouns and how they are used

Gender in English

Czech names (of people and places) in English texts/translations

Impersonal constructions in Czech and their counterparts in English

Indefinite reference – the way it is expressed in English and in Czech

Metaphor/proverbs in English and in Czech

Conjuncts in English and their position in a sentence

Quantifiers neither, either, both, any, no and none and their use in English
