Description The norm of cultivated pronunciation, its description and acquisition The norm of cultivated pronunciation and its description in the codification does not have a long tradition. Besides short remarks in grammars, several short individual works were written since the half of the 19th century, but they were usually not generally accepted. Although 75 years ago general guidelines for the creation of the pronunciation codification of Czech were proposed, and then 60 years ago the first publication so conceived was published, its practical implementation was difficult. It should have an impact on public speech, but the articulation mechanism gets fixed naturally since the childhood, and the defects are hard to remove without motivation. What is more, the pronunciation instructions are presented in written form, and it is necessary to express them with regard to the user – a layman. Still, we cannot give up the endeavor to understand and to codify the pronunciation norms.
