The Himachali Pahari:
The number of Himachali Pahari dialects (also called "Western Pahari group") accounts for 6 million people. Native speakers belong to the Indo-Aryan group and live primarily in the Indian district Himachal Prades and some other neighboring ones. This group includes 10-60 varieties, according to different estimates, however, none of them has official status. These are spoken languages, which do not have their written form and are not used at schools. Several millions of people communicate in Himachali dialects to transmit oral cultural heritage. Although, these languages are little-studied and have a little grammatical description that is not accessible. Now the group works on the description of the Kullui language. Linguistic expeditions were conducted in 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018 to Naggar (district Himachal Pradesh). On the basis of collected texts, the Kullui oral corpus is in process of creation. The investigation is performed with the support of grants RFBR, No. 19-012-00355, Research of the Kullui language on the basis of the oral corpus of texts (principle investigator Mazurova), 2019-2021; No. 16-34-01040, Grammatical description and Dictionary of the Indo-Aryan Kullui language, 2016-2018 (principal investigator Shuvannikova).

Languages of Moscow
The project "Languages of Moscow" is aimed at the description of the language diversity and functioning of languages in the language areal of Moscow. The investigation of the situation in Moscow is a topical objective from a cultural and linguistic point of view. Moscow is the most populated city of Russia and Europe, the center of the Moscow City Agglomeration as it has the biggest city agglomeration in Russia and Europe. The number of foreign citizens accounts for 10 million people, according to some estimates. At the same time, Moscow megapolis is not still well-studied. In frames of the project the general number of Moscow languages, the number of speakers, the geographic spread in its districts are estimated. Members of the project are to describe the level of the conservancy of language in different ethical and age groups, functional spheres of its use, the functioning of the language in society, including media and education. In addition, they are to research the level of acquisition of the Russian language and ways of learning it by people of diverse language groups in Moscow. The project identifies cultural, social, and linguistic factors influencing the process of adaptation for foreign pupils to Russian education. It is supported by the grant RFBR, No. 16-04-00474, Moscow Languages, 2016-2018 (principal investigator - Mazurova).
Research on the Ossetian Grammar
The objective of the project is to create the corpus in the Ossetian language (and its dialects), to study different aspects of grammar, to describe the typologically-oriented grammar of the (Iron) Ossetian literary language. The project was supported by the grant RSCI No. 13-04-00342, Preparation for the Publication of the typologically-Oriented Grammar of the Ossetian literary language, 2013-2015.

Languages of the World:
"Languages of the World" a long-term project of the Institute of Linguistics, RAS, aimed at the creation of the database of the hugest number of languages possible. The results of the projects are published in volumes of the encyclopedic edition "Languages of the World" dedicated to genealogical and areal language groups. All languages are examined through the typologically oriented schemes, including socio-linguistic, diachronic, grammatical features of one language or a group of languages. Thus, "Languages of the World" prepares the empirical database for typological research.
