Digital Slavic studies


The aim of the working group is the development and effective use of integrated national and European Research Area, including the research infrastructure (including information technology), for research in the field of Slavic linguistics and related disciplines. The infrastructure could be used in other fields of science. The project includes the following modules:

– Construction of a European multilingual Slavic linguistics terminology bank implemented to terminological research, including 13 Slavic languages: Polish, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Lower Sorbian, Upper Sorbian, Macedonian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Ukrainian, and also, because of general accessibility of the bank on the Internet – the English language. Users of the terminology bank, that would include the terms representative of Slavic linguistics, will be mainly specialists in the field, as well as other linguists, academics, graduate students, students, terminologists and lexicographers, editors of scientific publications, translators, teachers and high school students.

– Development of information resources bibliographic database and repository based on the knowledge of Slavic linguistics, Slavic–non-Slavic contrastive linguistics and related disciplines (collection, selection, processing and providing access to information to users). IT infrastructure will be used for the development of functionality of the bibliographic database, the bank terminology and the repository of texts. The access to multilingual information collection system (in all Slavic languages ​​and in English) is an innovative and useful solution.
