English abstract The talk provided a brief summary of the history of methods applied in the development of a grammar checker for Czech from initial ideas to the implementation as an indistrial application being used in Microsoft Office. The original idea of directly exploiting restarting automata for the error identification and localization in a language with a high degree of word order freedom (Czech) proposed in 1994 responded to a fact that the standard error checking methods using local error patterns were not applicable to such kind of a natural language. The concept of using a restarting automaton naturally allowed to simplify input sentences step by step by preserving an invariant of its correctness/incorrectness. Although the original automaton has transfgormed to a Robust Free-Order Dependency Grammar, it still retained this basic property.
