The project "Cognitive analysis of word semantics: computer-corpus approach" was supported by RFBR (Russian Foundation for Basic Resarch) as a winner of the competition of initiative research projects in 2011. The core of the project is the research in the field of cognitive linguistics based on computer-corpus data. The purpose of the project is the development of new methods of word cognitive analysis and the further development of existing methods, therefore the creation of common methodology of cognitive analysis based on computer-corpus approach.
