AnotationThe project focuses on syntactic features of different styles in contemporary written Czech. The research is based on the quantitative analysis of the corpus SYN2020 which is a syntactically annotated, representative corpus of contemporary written Czech. The corpus consists of 100 million tokens. Various syntactic features such as mean sentence length, sentence types, word order, modality, distribution of syntactic functions, indicators of attributivity and subjectivity are analyzed. Our aim is to enrich the previous research on the style of Czech texts with new perspectives. First, we focus on the syntactic part of Czech stylistics which usually stands out of the main interest of scholars. Second, our analysis is based on quantitative methods.
