AnotationThe project is targeted on free place on in the field of bilingual dictionaries focused on linguistic terminology in the form of corpus of Russian and Czech linguistic terminology. Bilingual Czech-Russian or Russian-Czech dictionaries are of rich tradition in the Czech environment. Nevertheless even the most recent dictionaries originated quite a long time ago (in 1960 and 1988). Unfortunately these lexicons do not reflect the latest scientific findings and adequate linguistic terms. In the framework of the project we will create a corpus of Russian and Czech linguistic terms. For the purpose we will use existing linguistic dictionaries, excerpts from the latest studies on linguistics in the field of Russian and Czech, and also excerpts from scientific literature in libraries in the Czech Republic and Russia. The final corpus of linguistic terminology will be analyzed, described and confronted with corpuses of Russian and Czech. Its preparation and partial conclusions will be presented and discussed at scientific conferences in the Czech Republic and abroad, in scientific reviewed journals, in a diploma work and theses of co-promoters of the project. The corpus will be used as ground for Russian-Czech bilingual dictionary of linguistic terms, which might be published in a form of book in the framework of following project of SGS (in 2019). In future the corpus of Russian and Czech linguistic terminology may be extended to other Slavonic languages.
