The British National Corpus (BNC) is a 100 million word collection of samples of written and spoken language from a wide range of sources, designed to represent a wide cross-section of current British English, both spoken and written. Therefore, this is a very helpful tool when writing, as we can make sure if the expression we are using/writing has ever been used.
