Hello all!

I'm looking for a concordancer which would be able to show me collocations appearing in a text not more than a certain number (less than 1, less than 2, etc.). I'm building my glossary and this would help me find rare collocations in a text portion without having to dig through it.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance

Wordsmith Tools Apr 5, 2009

Wordsmith Tools should allow you to do that.

I used it for my dissertation.

By the way, when I was looking for such a lexical analysis tool, I came across this guy named Cetin from Heidelberg university. He was working on a similar, but open-source tool. I think it was called TENKA. Maybe he's released it in the meantime.

It's not Freeware, but quite affordable (about 14 €) and very useful:
