Dear all, I'm pleased to announce the first release of the USAS semantic field lexicon and multiword list for Russian. The Russian lexicon and MWE list are available from the ASSIST project website: http://ucrel.lancs.ac.uk/projects/assist/ We provide a zip archive containing three files: a single word lexicon, a proper name lexicon and a MWE lexicon. The current versions (14th December 2006) contain 13,153 single words, 4,444 proper names, and 713 MWE templates. For each word in the files, we include a part-of-speech tag based on the mystem tagset for Russian and a list of possible semantic field tags from the USAS taxonomy, all of which have been manually checked. For more details about the Russian resources, see Mudraya et al (2006). These Russian lexical resources are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.5 License.
