The Sketch Engine is a new piece of software which does this.
Go to http://www.sketchengine.co.uk and self-register. Then you can
call up a word sketch for any word. The word sketch for a verb includes
a listing of the adverbs that repeatedly and significantly modify it.

Subject: [Corpora-List] Searching BNC for adverbs followed by verb
I would like to know if it is possible to search the BNC in order to
find out which adverbs precede a particular verb.
It doesn't seem to be possible, or at least I haven't figured out the
way to query the database in order to retrieve this sort of information.
Thank you in advance for your help,
