Using the Just-the-word concordancer demonstration video

Inspired by Russell Stannard and using Jing, I have created this short video to demonstrate how simple it is to use the on-line concordancer from Sharp at http://www.just-the-word.com .

There are one or two limitations on the site – nodata on where the underlying examples of English have come from , or how recent the data is (that I could find), a 100 searches a day limit, but the site does allow you access to an API to do technical stuff with.  And if you have enough data you can make a Wordle map of your results.

Enjoy the video
