“Morphological variation in contemporary Standard Czech – using the example of the personal endings me and m in first person plural indicative verb forms”. In Czech, the coexistence of the first person plural endings -me and -m in indicative verb forms dates back to a remote past. While in Old Czech both the plural ending -m and -me could be applied to all thematic verbs, this pattern changed when the singular ending -m spread from a small group of athematic verbs to a large group of thematic verbs. Thus, in modern Czech, the ending -me can be used with all verbs, whereas the plural ending -m can only be used with some conjugation types and its occurrence in written texts is rare. Nonetheless, in 1941, the plural ending -m was codified alongside with the ending -me. In this paper, we aim to answer the question how the endings -me and -m are used in contemporary TV journalism, namely in the Interview ČT24 TV programme. The examined specimen comprises 200 live recordings (2020–2021).
