The HyperGrammar of the University of Ottowa’s Writing Centre is designed to allow users a great deal of freedom and creativity as they read about grammar. It allows them to create and follow their own lines of thought. On its first appearance on any page, every grammatical term is linked to its definition. A user reading about nouns might jump to the simple subject, and from there to subordinate clause.

The corpora at this site were created by Mark Davies, Professor of Linguistics at Brigham Young University. They have many different uses, including: finding out how native speakers actually speak and write; looking at language variation and change; finding the frequency of words, phrases, and collocates; and designing authentic language teaching materials and resources.

The corpora are used by more than 100,000 people each month (more than 200,000 visits), which makes them perhaps the most widely-used corpora currently available. They also serve as the basis for an increasing number of publications by researchers from throughout the world.
