    Try this site http://view.byu.edu It searches the BNC, one of the biggest corpora available, and will show collocations and colligations. It's worth playing with to get used to. I think it's one of the most useful sources on the web.

    Have you tried the Time corpus there too- it can produce some very interesting results if you look at buzz words and jargon.
