The offline disambiguated version of the Corpus (approx. 1 million words) — license agreement
The diachronic datasets of the Corpus (the total size of datasets is approx. 250 million words) — license agreement
The diachronic datasets cover three timespans, 1700-1916, 1918-1991 and 1992-2016, and correspond to three historical periods of the society and the Modern Russian language ("pre-Soviet", "Soviet", including the diasporal texts as well, and "post-Soviet").
Each of these timespans is represented by a large UTF-8 encoded text file containing shuffled sentences from the source texts. The sentences are shuffled to comply with the requirements of copyright protection. The texts lack a morphological or metatextual annotation.
The Corpus' developers appreciate any feedback and bug report on the Corpus.
