Hi Corpus Linguists!
I'm wondering whether one of you could possibly help me with a research project on future expressions in English. I'm looking for several structures in the spoken part of the British National Corpus and I have some problems to find types like "VERBing", "will be VERBing" and so on.
Is there a possibility to find all present progressive forms without doing a separate query on every single verb, i. e. is it possible to insert some kind of "place marker" indicating "base form of lexical verb"?
Thanks a lot for your help!
Many Greetings from Cologne,
