Abstract: This study introduces a new computer-based methodology, 'concgramming', that has as its primary aim the automatic identification of the phraseological profile and hence the 'aboutness', of a text or corpus. It is argued that this methodology can be employed by language learners and teachers to raise awareness of the importance of the phraseological tendency in language. The methodology is outlined, and examples of its potential for use by language learners in a data-driven learning mode are described. The wider implications of concgramming, and the concgrams so generated, are also discussed with regard to CALL.
