Linguistics students may need to use software to conduct corpus analysis such as word frequency, concordance and N-gram clusters. LSS have chosen AntConc by Professor Laurence Anthony since it is free, simple to use and works on Windows, Mac and Linux computers.

AntConc Homepage – downloads, printable guides, video tutorials, discussion groups.

Scroll down the page to find standardised English word frequency lists and lemma lists for English, French and Spanish.

Note that the download is an .exe program file, so you can save it to a USB drive and run it from there with no need to install on the PC (and you can’t install on anything on the PCs computer rooms in any case).
