Using BNC XML for English language study

This page contains some examples of how the BNC (XML edition) can be used in combination with non-corpus based activities and exercises to study the English language. The exercises are intended as illustrations of what can be done with access to the corpus and the Xaira program. Refer to the sample search results provided or perform your own searches.
