[Corpora-List] Matching software

I am looking for software that will operate a match between input text - up
to 2,000 words, say - and a corpus in a similar manner to Turnitin
- except that I will build and control the relevant d-bases the programme
will use.
Another key difference is that whereas Turnitin searches for matches of
strings of over 7 words between input and d-base, I'm looking for "match
failure" of either 2 or 3 words between input and d-base.
I guess you could say I'm looking for an engine that will give me Turnitin
in reverse, picking up the absence of a match between input and corpus, and
colour-coding it.
Any suggestions appreciated.
