Description The study focuses on the valency of primary adjectives on the basis of the linguistic material provided by the SYN2010 corpus. The adjective valency constitutes a rather neglected part in the extensive literature dealing with the question of valency, only a few authors address it Piťha (1982), Prouzová (1983); adjective valency appears in the form of fragments in some articles Panevová (1998), Panevová (1999) etc.; a monograph treatment is provided by Kopřivová (2006). Using contemporary linguistic material, this study attempts to clarify if the valency described in Prouzová works, and it does so by focusing on the comparison of the conclusions reached by her and Kopřivová; a short valency lexicon of primary adjectives is built as a result of this aim. Another aim of the study is to obtain a model of the primary adjective valency for future comparison between primary and derived adjectives valency.
