Just learned from the good folks over at Phonoloblog (in a post by Kie Zuraw) about QueryGoogle, developed by Tim Ma and Bruce Hayes "to permit the linguist to obtain the corpus frequencies of a chosen set of items from the World Wide Web, using the well-known Google search engine. The linguist prepares a list of forms for which (s)he wants to know the frequencies, and the program rapidly queries Google, obtaining the frequencies of each form."

Haven't played with it yet, but looks promising.
