    Hi Anastasios, Yes, thanks, I’m aware of the existence of the updated BNC, but I’m afraid that’s all I know…

    I’m not surprised to see wifi and google in the 2014 version (thanks for looking them up for me). I wonder whether wireless has lost it’s meaning of radio in the new BNC? (Please don’t take that as a hint to check, it’s just a passing observation).

    I liked the Webcorp option of putting in your own text and then running collocation (and/or frequency) searches. Is there a word count limit on that? At the moment I use AntConc with my students, having them create their own corpus in their chosen field of interest and then look at language use in that context, and how data from the corpus can either be used in the classroom or to inform their teaching
