The focus of this diachronic linguistic research into the Early New High German is, among others, the use of language conventions in a particular historical linguistic community and the development of these conventions in a given period. A suitable procedure for such investigations has been found in description of the text types in the form of the so-called text forms, i.e. schemas with binding components present in all copies of the given text type, or additional components resulting from the specifics of a concrete communication situation which may depend on the writer’s personality. After determining the text forms, i.e. analysis at the level of the text macrostructure, the analysis of selected microstructures of each text follows, which refers to the formal and content aspects of a sentence. From this perspective, the study examines 180-year-long development of the German specimens of the ‘inventories of inheritance’ text type produced in the Olomouc Town Office. Concrete examples from German texts are given to illustrate the gradual formation of a uniform text structure and its uniform lexical realization.
