      Hullo,

      Check out recent entries in Robin Stock's excellent weblog regarding
      the current state of wildcard searches at Google and WebCorp.

      WebCorp is a very useful resource (described in a Guardian article
      that I highlighted here some time ago), which is brought to us by
      Liverpool University's Research and Development Unit for English
      Studies ( http://www.webcorp.org.uk ). "Not only will it let you
      create concordance lines for the words or phrases you are
      investigating, but it also lets you return to the original text
      sources for each result so that you can check who was saying what,"
      says the Guardian article.

      Bit slow at the moment but looks like it's set to improve.
