Dear Amaš,

as well as tools you can trust, you need data you can trust. Techniques I describe in Getting to know your corpus<http://trac.sketchengine.co.uk/attachment/wiki/AK/Papers/Kilgarriff_TSD2012.pdf?format=raw> are designed to help researchers find the characteristics, quirks and biases of their dataset

Regards

Adam
