British National Corpus (BNC) [100m wds; 1990s British English, spoken & written]: There are many different web sites giving free (but limited) access to the corpus--limited due to copyright: i.e. you cannot expand the concordance context to read more of the surrounding text, & you cannot read the entire source texts (only snippets). BNCweb: User-friendly, free interface (limited features, if no paid licence). JustTheWord: The most accessible site for non-English-speaking background students (& most pedagogically useful) because it straightaway gives you a list of collocations for your search word/phrase, instead of concordances; results are categorized by POS-based patterns & by approximate sense clusters, & graph bars give an indication of how common each combination is. Results are based on a 80K-word subset of the BNC. 2. · Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA): [450 m wds; 20 m wds of American Eng each year from 1990-2012.] 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.
