I'm not aware of any thus far, though it will be great when someone does it. As it happens, we're working on making use of the Google database at ETS for internal research purposes. It takes a LOT of machine to index and serve up that data with any speed, and the scaleups to making it available as a database with fast turnarounds on queries are pretty sizeable.

Has anyone set up a web service for Google's Web1T database (eg, at the simplest, user inputs an n-gram of English and get back its frequency or NULL)
