Being a universal linguistic category, deixis has been in the focus of many linguistic and non linguistic researches throughout the 20th and 21st century. Types of deictic expressions (deictics) differ among languages, but their function remains the same: to relate language and the here and now speech acts. The selection of deictic expressions depends on the position of participants in the speech act whose bodies function as orientation points. There are two main types of deictic systems: speaker/distance-based, concerning the speaker only, and participant-based, concerning speaker, hearer and absent/distant person. Even though Czech and Croatian belong to the same language group, as far as deixis is concerned, there are significant differences between the two systems, especially when it comes to pronominal words. The aim of this paper was to stress the main inequalities between Czech and Croatian space deictic systems. By analyzing deictic pronouns and pronominal space adverbs I have tried to look into the classification of the two languages as a three-parted speaker/distance-oriented and two-parted distance-based system respectively.
