Re: [Snowball-discuss] Sample Russian vocabulary

Okay so what is so bad about Chekhov? An excellent writer, according to the
authorities I have consulted ...

More seriously, the vocabulary derives from two 19th century novels (by
Dostoyesvsky and Goncharev). Obviously there is a lot of more modern Russian
on the web, but not knowing Russian, it is difficult for me assess how much
value there would be in incorporating it in the test vocabulary.

If you find some texts, and they are on the web, I may be able to help in
creating the vocabulary, if you need any help there.
