Find more and better collocations in French. We have improved our collocation search (the word sketch feature) identifying automatically collocations and patterns specific to French.

Sketch Engine now provides more and better grammatical relations including more descriptive names for French collocations. Users can also explore collocations of proper nouns, such as Paris or Pierre. The word sketch rules were improved in cooperation with Ludovica Lanini, PhD student from the Sapienza University of Rome.

Currently, the new French word sketches are available in the French web corpus, the other French corpora are being updated.

To update your own user corpora, please recompile. All newly created user corpora will be built with the new sketches automatically.
