    Hi, I am working on my MA-TESOL at Cal State East Bay. Just recently, I have read numerous journal articles about the effectiveness of using concordancers and corpora of authentic texts in the teaching of grammar and vocabulary. I am really excited about this but am having little success actually using a concordancer (like COCA, Compleat /Complete Lexical Tutor, or Micase) to do anything but the most basic queries. Anyone out there who uses any of these concordancers enough to give me a little help with specific queries, especially about grammar.
