Concordancing, also known as Keyword in Context (KWIC), is an efficient way to see how some linguistic phenomenon of interest is behaving in context.

Concordancing works on any Dataset, be it a whole corpus or a search result. For example, to concordance words ending in -ing:

from buzz import Corpus
dtrt = Corpus('dtrt/do-the-right-thing-parsed')
ing = dtrt.just.words('ing$')
ing.conc()

Below are the keyword arguments accepted by the conc method:

Argument Default Purpose
show ['w'] A list of attributes to show in the match column.
n 100 Stop after producing this many lines
window 'auto' Size of left and right columns, as integer or tuple of two integers. auto will attempt to use your display size intelligently
metadata True Add metadata info as extra columns
ing.head().to_html()
left match right file s camera_angle line loc scene sent_id setting speaker stage_direction text time voice-delivery
