The mission of the Linguistics series is to make current knowledge from various linguistic sub-disciplines, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, semantics, grammar, pragmatics, and so on, available to the Czech public. The series primarily focuses on translations of established basic textbooks by acclaimed authors and publishers; in the future the inclusion of the original texts is planned. Reviewed Czech terminology is another advantage of the series. Books published in this series can be used by students to acquaint themselves with the research area and the methods used, by linguists to expand their knowledge of current developments in linguistics, and by the greater public to gain information on current research into languages.
