Polysemy of Rhyme Words: A Case Study of Two Slovak Poems
Natália Kolenčíková, Michal Místecký, Gabriel Altmann
Abstract. The goal of the article is to count and measure polysemy of rhyme words. The corpus of the
research will include two poems by Andrej Sládkovič, a Slovak Romantic poet – Marína (primarily)
and Morava (secondarily). The research is carried out on the basis of rank-frequency distributions, which
are very well capturable by the expontential function. This proves the tendency of using one-meaning
words in rhymes much more than those with multiple meanings.
School and Gender in Numbers: A Stylometric Insight into the Lexis of Teenagers’ Description Essays
Michal Místecký, Lucie Radková
Abstract. The goal of the paper is to make use of four quantitative indicators (MATTR, ATL, Q, and
VD) to study vocabulary richness, lexis complexity, text activity, and syntactic complexity of Czech
schoolchildrenʼs writing tasks. The corpus comprises 60 texts written by elementary-school and
secondary-school pupils, distributed equally according to the gender and the education level (30 each);
the genre of the task was description (“my bedroom” for the elementary schoolers, and “class/school
of the future” for the secondary ones). The research is carried out in three distinct comparisons
(schools, genders, and the mixture of both), and the results are interpreted with the assistance of a
pedagogical professional. At the end of the study, a detailed summary of the outcomes is provided.
