What can I learn from concordancing?

Concordancing allows the user to view and analyse the words directly before and directly after a particular word. For example, today we researched the words ‘make’ and ‘do’ to investigate what words are used most frequently alongside these common verbs. It was useful in seeing how to differentiate between the two which could potentially be tricky for a language learner. The verb ‘faire’ encompasses both meanings in French so I can easily imagine the problems French learners of English may have.
