I believe that you will find TerminologyExtractor interesting.

Chamblon Systems Inc has developed a tool for extracting word lists and
collocations, with frequencies, from MS Word, HTML and plain text documents.
This tool uses exclusion lists and converts plurals and conjugated verbs
into singulars and infinitives in English and French texts before
processing, which produces very good results. Check the web site at for more information. There, you will be able to see a full
description of the product, view the user's guide and examples, and download
a demo copy of the tool.
