Google Ngram Viewer

For those who have yet to be acquanted with it, Google Ngram is a very nifty little feature that allows a user to find the frequency of certain words and phrases in a selection of 5 million books, with publication dates spanning several centuries, in an online database.

Google Ngram Viewer

It can also yield some very interesting information about cultural trends. For instance, try the words "colour" and "color" in the British English corpus, then try again for American English:





A well-quoted example is "Marc Chagall", the name of a Jewish artist. In the German corpus, from 1933 to 1945 there is a very telling dip in the artist's popularity, due to censorship on account of World War II:



Here's another - "Iraq" in the American English corpus:



"Feminism" in the British English corpus:



What results can you come up with?

Can you make a Ngram of the frequency that people actually care about which annoying advertisement that they're going to ignore anyways is shown?

So I'm going to go ahead and guess the 1600's weren't a very happy time for humanity.

People in 1680 sure had fun. But not for long.
