[Update] And here is my short tutorial on how to use it.

A simple guide to using Antconc

I have created a file about using Antconc, a concordancing program by Laurence Anthony at Waseda University. You can find it here. The latest version was created on 5 March 2011.

Online concordancing

If you require just a simple concordancer then go to Concordancer at http://ec.hku.hk/vocabulary/concordancer.htm. It give only counts and highlights of the search term with no KWIC.

ConcApp 5

The concordancer software ConcApp (version 5) has now become purchaseware. It is an easy to use program recommended for those learning to use corpus and concordancers. Its best feature, though, is that it can be used for not only English and French texts but also Japanese (tested), Chinese, Thai and Russian.

While it is purchaseware it is reasonably priced (USD20 as of posting), well worth it if you are in need of concordancing in languages other than English.

Just The Word

I found this online concordancer called JustTheWord. It looks like it was made for teachers to search for (Japanese) student errors.
