    Smile Anyone analysed BNC before?

    Hi, I am new here and am looking for information on the analysis of BNC (British National Corpus). I know there is a lot of information on the internet but I could not locate specific info on academic verb-noun collocations extracted from BNC. Do you know if anybody has come up with a list of it? Need to know this for my current research. Thanking you in advance.

    I use it to do analyses; I wouldn't say I 'analyse' it.

    There's a help file if you look, at British National Corpus (BYU-BNC) . Have a* play.

    PS * This countable use of 'play' is informal but common, especially in the world of IT.

    The same people have done some stuff here, but mainly American Language Corpus: Corpus-based word frequency lists, collocates, and n-grams
