Sketch Engine

Sketch Engine is a tool for anyone researching how words behave, and is useful across a variety of disciplines, including linguistics, language learning and translation. It is a Corpus Query System incorporating word sketches and one-page automatic and corpus-derived summaries of a word's grammatical and collocational behaviour. It also includes concordances, a thesaurus, word frequency lists, and keyword lists, as well as ready-to-use corpora for sixty languages.
