262Reviews Expressive words and substandard, demotic forms and words are listed cographers consider "wrong" words or forms (incorrect is their term) are in the strings of synonyms -- widi suitable labels, of course. What these lexiquoted, but diey are distinguished by die typeface used: they are not printed in boldface like the other synonyms. Also, diese "incorrect" words are labeled as such, diough indirectly: the form considered incorrect is followed by die form considered "correct," which is printed in boldface. For instance, "dielci [= 'par- tial'] správ. [= correctly] ciastkovy." Sometimes, however, the labeling is direct and die sequence reversed. For instance, under otvorit', in sense 2, we find parliament']; nespráv. [= incorrectly] zahájit': zahájit' schôdzu, správ. [= correctly] otvorit' schôdzu." In some cases the disapproval is not explicitly stated and is conveyed only by not printing the synonym in boldface; for instance, "zacat' otvorit', zacat' zasadnutie parlamentu [= 'begin, open the session of under pohodlny 'easy going', the synonyms komótny and nenáhlivy follow, and the typeface only. In most if not all cases, the unboldfaced forms are Bohemianisms -- a phenomenon that one would expect in an 'Aufbausprache', as Heinz Kloss would call it, which Slovak is.
