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


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).
