This collection of essays and studies is a tribute to Libuše Dušková from a number of admirers: members of her department at the Faculty of Arts in Prague; of the Czech Modem Language Association, of which she has recently been the chairperson; and four other scholars in the field of English linguistics. One paper in particular deserves our mention: that of Professor Jan Firbas, the last
he completed before his death in January 2000. It stands as a testimony of his genuine affection and respect for Libuska Duskova, embodying the words of the Book of Proverbs (18: 21): “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
