Quote from review: "[T]his is largely a rave review, with a few rants along the way. First I will discuss some of the main features of MC, then describe three rather different projects I used it for, indicate where I found it indispensable, and where I found it less useful and why, with suggestions for revision of the user interface. At the end I append some Web links in the References." Review Author: John Lawler. Published: LINGUIST List 11.1411, June 25, 2000.

This review is "a close look at WordSmith Tools (Version 3) and MonoConc Pro (Version 2), two of the more readily available and reasonably priced packages for working with corpora, in order to contrast the different options that they offer teachers and researchers."
