Sketch Engine API - Sample Source Code

The Sketch Engine (SkE) is a Corpus Query System that lets users access information on 30 million to 10 billion words for each of 42 languages (with more to come). Information is provided in the form of word sketches; one-page, automatic, corpus-derived summaries of words' grammatical and collocational behavior. "Collocation" describes the behavior of words or terms that occur together more often than mere chance would dictate. Users can also employ SkE's WebBootCaT service to build their own instant corpora for specialist terminology in any language. These corpora can then be uploaded to SkE for further exploration. SkE's information can be accessed directly though a web browser or programmatically using REST calls.
