Abstract:The article deals with the didactic potential of the modern corpus linguistics, in particular, the use of the corpus of texts as a source of data for didactic materials. The author formulates the steps for creating of a mini-corpus with German publicist texts applying a specialized search engine Yomunda. The method employs the work with corpus analysis toolkit for concordancing, including preprocessing of texts, their conversion, compiling a list of vocabulary frequency, and the lemmatization of types that are included in the frequency list. The article describes the experience of the compilation of thematic vocabulary minimum on the basis of the corpus of authentic texts and its verification using database Profile Deutsch. The analysis shows that the proposed algorithm for creating vocabulary minimum can effectively select the most common tokens of topical authentic texts. The advantage of this created vocabulary minimum is its derivational wealth. The algorithm allows forming vocabulary minimum for any target group.
