A resource grammar is a standard library for the GF grammar formalism. It raises the abstraction level of writing domain- specific grammars by taking care of the general grammatical rules of a language. GF resource grammars have been built in parallel for eleven languages and share a common interface, which simplifies multi- lingual applications. We reflect on our ex- perience with the Russian resource gram- mar trying to answer the questions: how well Russian fits into the common inter- face and where the line between language- independent and language-specific should be drawn.
