Discussion: sharing experiences with CQL

What’s happening in this topic?

Time to complete: approximately 30-45 mins

In this topic you’ll complete a short task involving the CQL function in Sketch Engine and share that with others on the forum.

Hopefully by working through the guide you now feel a little more comfortable using Corpus Query Language. Ok, what we’d like you to do is this:


  • Identify a grammatical / lexical structure you would like to search.
  • Turn this structure into a sequence of tags, lemmas and/or words to be used in the CQL box.
  • Share the structure, the CQL sequence and the link to the results (concordance lines) below.
