Lexical Computing logo

Lexical Computing is a research company founded by Dr. Adam Kilgarriff in 2003. It works at the intersection of corpus and computational linguistics, and is committed to an empiricist approach to the study of language, in which corpora play a central role: for a very wide range of linguistic questions, if a suitable corpus is available, it will help our understanding. Its strap line is ‘corpora for all’. It has a leading corpus query tool, the Sketch Engine, incorporating ‘word sketches’, one page corpus-driven summaries of word’s grammatical and collocational behaviour.
