The present volume was brought together on the occasion of Petr Sgall’s 60th birthday. It bears testimony to the multifarious and variegated character of his background and activities. It is to be hoped that this kind of variety will contribute – as Petr Sgall strives to do – to a broader and deeper understanding and cooperation between linguists of various backgrounds. The volume contains sections on I. Semiotics and semantics; II. The Sentence and Its Structure; III. Below the Sentence Structure; IV. Topic and Focus; V. Text and Context; VI. Formal and Computational Methods.
