Project summary

The project aims to collect 50 million words, 50% of Polish originals translated into Russian and 50% vice versa. The core of the resources consists of the literary classics of the nineteenth century and contemporary works which are most popular in the neighbouring country. The corpus contains press texts and their translations, as well as legal texts. The texts are annotated according to the DTDs of the National Corpus of Polish and the Russian National Corpus. A morphosyntactic search is possible, although the standards of the two national corpora differ according to some grammatical classes and categories.
