word sketch

The word sketch is a tool to display collocations (=word combinations) in a compact, easy-to-understand way. The word sketch makes it easy to understand how a word behaves, which contexts it typically appears in and which words it can be used together.

The word sketch can typically display collocations of only nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. This may differ between languages and corpora. The supported parts of speech are determined by the word sketch grammar applied to the corpus.

Users can develop their own word sketch grammars to customize the collocation analysis to their own needs.
