Corpus of Historical American English (COHA)
(Entry based on information on the corpus website and on http://davies-linguistics.byu.edu/personal/)
The corpus is composed of more than 400 million words of text in more than 100,000 individual texts. The corpus is 100 times as large as any other structured corpus of historical English, and it is balanced in each decade between fiction, popular magazines, newspapers, and academic. As a result, it allows researchers to examine a wide range of changes in English with much more accuracy and detail than with any other available corpus
