Russian is a language of tremendous geographic breadth and of remarkable linguistic diversity. In this project, audio data recorded in a wide range of locations, from Siberia and Far East to Southern Russia, was deployed to provide the basis for examining the relationship between phonology, morphology, syntax, the lexicon, discourse and socio-linguistic factors.
The online database constructed for this project consists of multilevel annotation applied to a large set of audio data recorded in a wide range of locations. All materials including high quality audio recordings are freely available for download.
