Words & Images

The Corpus of Contemporary American English is a huge collectio of how English is used in real contexts. This is drawn from a range of sources and has over 520 million words of text. It is one of the biggest freely available corpus tools on the internet and a useful technology tool both for teachers and students. It is a great tool to demonstrate examples of the way words or phrases are used in context and is something you can introduce into the classroom or show students who can make use of it at home.
