Accessing Russian culture online: The scope of digitization in museums across Russia

AbstractWe compare the scope of museum digitization in the Russian Federation, a country with diverse cultural heritage and over 2,300 museums, with the scope of digitization in Europe as measured by the Enumerate Survey of 355 museums from twenty European countries initiated by the Collections Trust, UK, in 2011. Our article shows that the reach and scope of digitization in Russia is lesser than that of European museums. Digitization is mainly done in Russia for inventory purposes.

‘he liked to read, write, and whatch televishon’—The APU Writing and Reading Corpus (1979–1988)

AbstractRecent research has demonstrated the potential of corpus linguistics as a solid aid in children’s understanding of how language works. However, the availability of data from the UK is still somewhat limited.

Lancaster Corpus of Children’s Project Writing, the Oxford Children’s Corpus, the Growth in Grammar Corpus); on the other hand, historical corpora are, unfortunately, not publicly available in electronic format (cf.
