We present CSNIPER (Corpus Sniper), a tool that implements (i) a web-based multi- user scenario for identifying and annotating non-canonical grammatical constructions in large corpora based on linguistic queries and (ii) evaluation of annotation quality by mea- suring inter-rater agreement. This annotation- by-query approach efficiently harnesses expert knowledge to identify instances of linguistic phenomena that are hard to identify by means of existing automatic annotation tools.
