Description The author of the paper introduces several basic terms from the sphere of orthography and punctuation and reflects their mutual relationship in Czech and Russian. In the paper the author mentions some of their definitions that are not always unambiguous, comments on them and compare to each other, which includes comparing between languages. Greater attention is paid to punctuation and punctuation and other marks as well as to other tendencies and problematic phenomena that are not captured in codification manuals. He points out the different understanding of punctuation in Czech and Russian. There are also presented some terms and definitions from the typography sphere, that has close relationship with orthography and punctuation. However, typography and the visual side of the text is in the background among linguists, although the differences (especially in practice) between the languages are significant and there is the high level of interference between them. Based on some sameness between orthography and typography there is established a new term, typographic-orthographic phenomenon, which should connect the spheres of orthography, punctuation and typography.
