Corpus linguistics is one of the fastest-growing methodologies in contemporary linguistics. In a conversational format, this article answers a few questions that corpus linguists regularly face from linguists who have not used corpus-based methods so far. It discusses some of the central assumptions (‘formal distributional differences reflect functional differences’), notions (corpora, representativity and balancedness, markup and annotation), and methods of corpus linguistics (frequency lists, concordances, collocations), and discusses a few ways in which the discipline still needs to mature. When studying the language and writing framework style in the works of russian researchers of the late XVIII- early XX centuries are of considerable interest. The materials of the article can be useful to journalists, local lore specialists, those who deal with problems of house building and the oldest history of the Forest Volga region population.
