Enhance your own writing skills by analyzing the textual patterns and corresponding frequencies in your own text documents. Search for words with specific endings. In some languages, such as Japanese and Korean, parts of speech are marked by particles.
A Student or linguist of these languages might benefit by having Word Patterns search for text patterns containing a particle ending (like a direct object marker) thus creating vocabulary lists of direct objects. By searching for common verb endings, a vocabulary list of verbs can be created. Search for text patterns containing words that are next to or near each other.

With Word Patterns you can define your own text pattern searches by using Regular Expressions. With regular expressions, the search possibilities are tremendous!
Word Patterns also allows you to save your results to a plain text file thus enabling the information to be used in a variety of ways.
