The first part of this thesis aims to explain the concept oflinguistic purism. Linguistic purism applies to care for the preservation of a language, or attempt to remove the unwanted and foreign language elements. It appears only in standard languages and can be rationally or irrationally motivated. Irrational motives are most commonly associated with the ideology and expression of superiority over other languages, while rational are related to intelligibility of language for all its speakers, as well as to maintaining the structure and prestige of the standard language. With regard to the "objective" of the purification process, there are several types of linguistic purism, which can appear in all levels of language. The second part of the paper refers to the linguistic purism in the Czech language, known as brusičství. The beginning of brusičství is associated with the period of Jan Hus. Brusičství is still developing with different intensity, with its most aggressive period being in the late 19th century.
