Hello,

Regarding n-grams (highly frequent word sequences like "on the other hand" or "why don't you"), does anybody any uses for them apart from language teaching.

Most literature dealing with n-grams seems to apply them to foreign language teaching, second language acquisition, or English for X purposes. Any other uses?

Best wishes,
