I would suggest TextStat (in python; gpl):

Hi Maurizio,

Almost any java-based program should work. However, a specific 
recommendation from colleague of mine here who says he uses 'antconc' 
under ubuntu.  http://www.antlab.sci.waseda.ac.jp/antconc_index.html I 
believe it is free and runs on multiple platforms.

My concordancing/word frequency needs are far simpler than real 
linguists so I tend either just to use normal linux commandline tools 
(cut, sort, uniq all combine easily to do basic word frequency) or do 
more structured queries with XQuery against texts in an XML database. 
But I realise that isn't the kind of thing you want to do.

I hope that is of some help.

Best,
-James
