[Corpora-List] Key coll-frames

Dear All,

Is there a tool available (preferably for Windows) that can produce
positive and negative key collocational frameworks* in a comparison of
two corpora? WordSmith can produce key words and key clusters/bundles,
but not key-frames with open slots. Ideally, the length and number of
empty frames should also be customisable (X1Y, X2Y, XY1Z etc)**.

I'd be grateful for any pointers. A while ago I tried Bill Fletcher's
kfNgram tool but it seemed not to offer this functionality.

I also include below titles of papers known to me that discuss
collocational frameworks (also in ESL context). Additions welcome.
