Description This paper is focused on the distribution of word order positions of the reflexive pronominal enclitic sě in one of the oldest Czech prosaic texts from the second half of the 14th century, e. g. in the Passional (the Old Czech translation/adaptation of the Latin Legenda aurea). It compares the situation in the Old Czech Passional with Matthew's Gospel in the Dresden Bible and the Olomouc Bible. Using quantitative linguistics methods, it examines the distribution of various positions and analyzes the influence of the length of the initial phrase on the distribution of post-initial and non-post-initial positions. The analysis of the relationship between the length of the initial phrase and the distribution of the sě is based on the assumption that the enclitics avoid the position after the initial phrase / constituent, which forms a separate intonation phrase. This mechanism is known as a heavy constituent constrain (Radanović-Kocić, 1996) or clitic third (Ćavar & Wilder, 1999).
