Corpora are unprecedented resources in the analysis of language and have become an integral part of research into the process of language acquisition. In this work, an insight is given into the wide field of corpus-based research and the application of corpora in various domains such as the design of language teaching materials, dictionary work and the study of translation. It will be demonstrated how collocations of English verbs of thinking can be extracted from the British National Corpus (BNC) using SARA, a program developed especially for accessing this corpus.
