Message 1: Tuebingen Russian Corpora Online-Query

Subject: Tuebingen Russian Corpora Online-Query

Dear colleagues,

The Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University
of Tuebingen, Germany, and Project B1 of SFB 441 are pleased to
announce the first release of the ONLINE QUERYABLE TUEBINGEN RUSSIAN
CORPORA. The query interface, as well as information about the corpus
and the corpus project can be accessed on the WWW at URL:

As a start, the Tuebingen Russian Corpora contain the Uppsala Corpus
of modern Russian texts. It provides a CGI interface to the corpus
files, which allows keyword searching with whole words and regular
expressions in PERL. The interface displays the query results with
cyrillic encoding (KOI8-R or Windows Codepage 1251) or latin
transliteration, provides frequency counts and, if selected,
contextual output and exact bibliographic sources.

In the future, we plan to provide annotated corpora and add to the
Tuebingen Russian Corpora a collection of text types as complete and
representative as possible, which will be available free of charge for
research purposes. Contributions are welcome!

If you need further information please don't hesitate to contact us:

Message 2: Hosting Fulbright Scholar from Kazakstan?

Subject: Hosting Fulbright Scholar from Kazakstan?

Dear linguists,

I'm looking for someone who would be interested in hosting a Fulbright
Scholar from Kazakstan. Her research interests include pragmatics of
Russian particles, Russian sociolinguistics, and creolization of
Russian in the countries of the former SU.

If anyone on this list is interested in making contact with her by
email, or has any advice on how she might go about finding a host,
please respond to me at

Thank you very much!

Ari Solovyova
