Getting started
Features overview

To start exploring the Corpus, use the Get Overview option on the main page.

Type a word or a phrase and click the Get Overview button.  

You will then see how the search results may look under various viewing options, be able to read the help files, or learn the basic corpus searching tools.

The Get Overview page is designed in the same way as any other search results page in the new interface of the corpus.



The Header of the results page consists of three bars indicating the corpus, the subcorpus (if specified) and the query.

The Corpus bar indicates the selected corpus, its size and other features and includes a button (i) to go to portrait of the corpus and a button to go to word at a glance service. The right side of the bar contains two buttons: Copy Link and Collapse / Expand Query Parameters. The latter allows you to hide the header and get more space for seeing the search results.

The Subcorpus bar does not appear unless you specified a subcorpus. It includes two buttons: Edit, which lets you change the previously selected parameters, and Reset, which resets the subcorpus to the original whole corpus The bar also shows the size of the current subcorpus and lists its parameters.

The Query bar includes a Back to Search button which reopens the search form with the previously selected parameters, shows the number of examples found for this query and a Seach Formula button, which lists the parameters chosen previously.

On the Get overview page, in the query statistics space you can see the number of corpora accessible for search and the number of available searching options.

Search results

The features overview shows widgets with search results under various viewing options on a single page

Here you can see:

* the number of results obtained in the exact wordform search mode

* the number of results obtained in the lemma and tags search mode

* the main grammatical and semantic characteristics of the query words

*the words that are most often found in combination with query words (collocations)

* the types of texts searched

* the chronological distribution of the search results 

* the poem with the query words, selected from the poetry corpus

You will see the number of the examples found and explore the tips for the selected search results viewing options.

If needed, you can switch from the feature overview to the full search results page, or refine your query in the full scale search form.

If your query yields no results, you will see an explanation as to why this might have happened.

The Get overview includes the most commonly used search types. As new functions become available, new learning widgets for all corpora will appear
