Russian-Czech online dictionary database

In addition to basic vocabulary, this electronic database also provides numerous new words and phrases, and apart from standard vocabulary, also slang, colloquial and non-standard expressions.

The database also covers groups of words that are usually not addressed separately in dictionaries, such as different gender forms of nouns, diminutives, verbal nouns, etc. An automatic link connects diminutives to the root word, verbal nouns to the relevant verbs, aspect pairs of verbs, and also certain verbs with and without prefixes. Grammatical tables, to which automatic links are provided in the headings of inflected words (nouns, adjectives, pronouns and numerals), provide more complete grammatical information. The classification and indexing of verbs is currently in the progress. From 2018 the dictionary is fully accessible.
