The Wikipedia Corpus

The Wikipedia Corpus contains the full text of the English version of Wikipedia, totalling 1.9 billion words in more than 4.4 million articles. It allows you to search Wikipedia in a much more powerful way than is possible with the standard interface. You can search by word, phrase, part of speech, and synonyms. You can also find collocates (nearby words), and see re-sortable concordance lines for any word or phrase.

phraseup* helps to find the words you need to complete a sentence. Sometimes we know what we want to write, the sentence is phrased in our mind, but we can’t figure out some of the words we need. This is where phraseup* comes in. Using a patent pending algorithm, phraseup* assists you with writing by suggesting possible combinations to fill-in the words you can’t remember. Each suggestion is accompanied by definitions, synonyms and translations to other languages.

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.
