Description The paper focuses on analyzing the relationship among word order positions of pronominal enclitics in the history of Czech. Specifically, it looks at the Wackernagel´s position and the contact position and tries to decide whether these two positions compete, as usually taken for granted, or whether there is a certain kind of cooperation between them. The results show that the positions do not compete, at least not in the majority of cases. A corpus based on selected books of the first edition of the Old Czech Bible and Kralice Bible is used for the analysis.
