We would like to announce the release of LexChecker, an English
web-based corpus query service developed at National Central
University in Taiwan. LexChecker takes as query input an English word
and provides as output a list of chunks or multiword strings in which
that word is conventionally used. The chunks in turn are each linked
to example sentences from BNC. The listed chunks are not only word
strings but can also contain slots indicating limited substitutability
within a part of speech. Thus the results show not only strings but
patterns of the target word’s use. To try the service and to see
further description, please visit http://www.lexchecker.org .
