Summary/Abstract: The article analyzes the phonetic (pronunciation-related) inquiries concerning the pronunciation of proper names, loan words and abbreviations, delivered by e-mail to the language consulting centre of the Institute of the Czech Language during the years 1999–2010. It focuses on phenomena that are not handled consistently in Czech orthoepy manuals, or for which the recommended pronunciation differs from the pronunciation usage/norm. The available manuals and the situation of the orthoepy research in the Czech context are also commented upon in general.
