The article deals with the problems of access to corpora, published in free access for researches as part of comparative corpus linguistics and proposes their solution. The corpora of different languages represented on the Internet differ significantly in the goals and principles of their creation, volume, structure, content, types of marking, chronological framework and other characteristics that cannot ensure the objectivity of the data obtained through their analysis in comparative researches. At the first stage of the study, we analyze the works devoted to the principles of organization and content of a comparative corpus, we determine this concept and its place in the typology of multilingual corpora. In the next stage, setting the goal of creating our own comparative corpus to study parceling as a cognitive-discursive phenomenon, we introduce the concept of a comparative object-oriented corpus, meaning a specialized bilingual or multilingual corpus, devoted to the study of a specific linguistic object. Further, the principles of creating a corpus with account of its specificity are formulated: the principles of representativeness, symmetry and comparability. The last principle is based on the observance of a number of quantitative and qualitative criteria for assembling this type of corpus. Only a consistent implementation of these principles will ensure the reliability of the data obtained in the course of the corpus analysis of the object under study. To build a comparative object-oriented corpus and its processing, we use the computer program Linguistica specially elaborated for solving research problems.
