Linguistics Professor Mark Davies has created and maintains a series of monumental corpora, including the Corpus of Contemporary American English, the Corpus of Historical American English, the TIME magazine Corpus of American English, the Corpus del EspaƱol, and the new (beta) Google Books interface. These corpora, ranging from 45 million to 155 billion words, have many different uses, including: finding out how native speakers actually speak and write; looking at language variation and change; finding the frequency of words, phrases, and collocates; and designing authentic language teaching materials and resources. The corpora have more than 130,000 unique users each month and serve as the basis for an increasing number of publications by researchers from throughout the world.
