Several types of searches are supported: full wildcard, "fuzzy queries" (one word near another), searching by register (to compare vocabulary and grammar across the 70+ registers), simple side-by-side comparisons of the collocates of synonyms and antonyms, and integration with WordNet, a semantically-based hierarchy of English.
Corpus of Contemporary American EnglishThe corpus contains more than 385 million words of text, including 20 million words each year from 1990-2008, and it is equally divided among spoken, fiction, popular magazines, newspapers, and academic texts.
