The paper outlines the meaning of two terms: culture, both in a general perspective and with a view to the concept of nation - ethnic community, and language style. It then analyses the Czech-American periodical press of the 2nd half of the 19th century, exploring the development of the constitutive means of style, in particular topic and language. The changes discovered are attributed to the continuing assimilation of Czech immigrants in the USA and perceived as the beginning of their Czech-American bilingualism.
