Sketch Engine

Sketch Engine is a tool for building, managing and exploring large text collections in dozens of languages. Sketch Engine is a tool to explore how language works. Its algorithms analyze authentic texts of billions of words (text corpora) to identify instantly what is typical in language and what is rare, unusual or emerging usage. It is also designed for text analysis or text mining applications. Sketch Engine contains 500 ready-to-use corpora in 90+ languages, each having a size of up to 30 billion words.

SkELL (Sketch Engine for Language Learning) is a simple tool for students and teachers of English to easily check whether or how a particular phrase or a word is used by real speakers of English.
