Summary/Abstract: This article on valency in West Slavic languages and French-speaking countries (Belgium and France) is divided into 10 sub-chapters. The first one discusses the emergence of the theory of valency by Tesnière (the term ”valence” was taken over by Tesnière from the field of chemistry). The second paragraph introduces Šmilauer’s contribution in the syntactic description of Czech with favorable applications for automatic syntactic analysis of Czech and for the simplicity of pedagogical interpretation. In addition, we present valency dictionaries in Slavic languages (in Czech, Slovak, Upper Sorbian) and French, although the latter is more complicated due to the linguistic system. These dictionaries are mostly accessible in the form of books or web pages. The dictionaries intended solely for automatic processing (e.g. Lefff dictionary edited of Benoît Sagot (Sagot et al. 2006)) have not been taken into account.
