Online text corpuses like those from byu.edu enable you to search for a word and have each hit neatly displayed in context. However, if you want to have the complete search results as a spreadsheet file on your computer, there is often no button to download the data. To fix that limitation, we created a little tool which you can put in your bookmarks bar and which will “scrape” the search results from the website for you fully automatically.

CorpusScraper also suited for the Corpus of Historical American English (COHA).
