Table 121. Czech Specification for Adverb
P Attribute (en) Value (en) Code (en)
1 Type general g
2 Degree positive p
comparative c
superlative s Notes

1. The classification given above is considerably simplified as compared to traditional Czech grammars. There can be other classifications as well, eg.:
(a) syntactic: Adverb modifying a Verb
Adverb modifying an Adjective
Adverb modifying another Adverb
Adverb modifying a Noun from the left
Adverb modifying a Noun from the right
(b) semantic temporal
We refrained from this typology here.

2. Particles form a separate part of speech category (see below) as is customary in Czech grammars.

3. The Adjectives which have no degrees of comparison have the Degree value equal to p(ositive) similarly as Adjectives. Combinations
Pos Type Deg Examples
R g p dobře
R g c lépe
R g s nejlépe
R g p tady MSD Index

This index gives the list of morphosyntactic descriptions (MSDs) and their features. In the table below, the first column gives the MSD, the second its expansion into a feature-structure, the third gives the number of entries in the lexicon (184,470 entries), and the fourth gives some examples as word-form/lemma. The list was extracted form the Czech MULTEXT-East lexicon.
