Russian Word Count is a statistical analysis of modern Russian literary texts of various genres. The book is useful to scientific and pedagogical workers in different fields. To facilitate work with the book, the words have been arranged in three fields. Thus, in adapting Russian texts, the authors of Russian text-books for non-Russians will find it easier to consult the alphabetical word frequency list, after preliminary acquaintance with the general word frequency list (the same is true of methodologists compiling Russian readers for home reading). In writing books of exercises and exercises for text-books, it is more convenient to refer to the word lists arranged according to parts of speech. Such lists show which grammatical forms of a word are most frequently used. Their use will enable exercise compilers to provide repeated practice with words most frequently used in the grammatical forms which are the object of the exercises. Teachers may use this book to select the active vocabulary for a text-book (as is known the words of a textbook fall into active and passive). Since the words included in this book coverup to 80 percent of texts of different kinds, we believe they may be recommended as an active vocabulary. This book may also be used in selecting words for minimal dictionaries and grammars.Besides the applied role of this book as an objective basis for the compilation of minimal dictionaries, textbooks and different kinds of aids for students, it can also be considered simply as a frequency dictionary of modern literary Russian. As such it can be used by specialized theoreticians in the Russian language and applied linguistics.
