Computer fund of Bashkir language is available in WWW to the address http://mflb.ru. Bashkir language has become the second language in the country after Russian, having its own computer fund.

The work on creation of Bashkir language computer fund runs since 2005 at the Institute of history, language and history RB, Ufa scientific center under Russian Academy of Sciences and internet center at Bashkir State University. The computer fund of Bashkir language represents the system for automation and dataware of investigations in lingual sphere. At the same time the fund can be useful not just for linguists but for wide public too. For example, the lexical base of the computer fund consists of 33 Bashkir language dictionaries and any Internet user may work with these dictionaries in online mode. The base includes general philological and specialized dictionaries and manuals. The fund also includes the Bashkir language card index – the inventory for the passive and the active vocabulary. It is composed on the base of the card index of the Institute of history, language and literature RB. Besides, the computer fund includes grammatical and experimental-phonetic bases for investigation of grammar and phonetics of Bashkir language. The base of dialects and the list of hand-written and old printed books in Bashkir language, kept by the Institute, are also considered a constituent part of the fund. The project has come into the world thanks to the efforts of the Institute’s researchers Lilia Buskunbaeva, Anisa Ishmukhametova, Alfia Ibragimova, Lusira Migranova and the employees of BSU internet center Amir Maksutov, Valerie Naumkin and Anatoly Polyanin.
