    Linguists who would like to make use of the increasing number of syntactically annotated text corpora in their research can use existing tools to find and count instances of the syntactic constructions they are interested in. Software supporting linguists in their work should also make it possible to build databases of search results where each hit is accompanied by a number of calculated (or manually addable) features. The stand-alone CorpusStudio program is able to provide this help, since it allows queries and feature calculations to be defined in the XQuery language. The web application of CorpusStudio, which is still under development, aims to have comparable functionality but with an easier accessibility. The main aim of this paper is to demonstrate why software should go beyond counting syntactic hits.
