Dear Sir/Madam,   I am writing to know whether the t-score used in corpus analysis is the same t-score used in regular statistics. That is, if I am, for example, looking for the collocation ?wing? and ?angel,? and I find that these two words occur together 75 times with a t-score value of 4.3, can I say that the df (degree of freedom) is 75-1=74, and then go to the t-score table and try to find whether my result is statistically significant, i.e. p<0.05?   I look forward to your response.   Sincerely,   Sandy
