Playing with Google Books Ngram

text analysis Google Ngram

Recently I came across a tool called Google Ngram.

Google Ngram Viewer is a powerful tool that allows users to search and analyze the frequency of words or phrases in a vast corpus of books and other written materials. With Google Ngram, users can track the popularity of words over time and across different languages and countries. This tool is often used in linguistic and cultural studies to investigate the evolution of language, identify trends in cultural attitudes, and explore the impact of historical events on written expression.

Often we can use it for analyzing trends and frequency for certain keywords for sentiment analysis, text classification etc… which could potentially be just anything relevant to our studies, like for instance it could be famous figures throughout the history or any course of Important events, certain events themselves, words, phrases, concepts, or a bunch of relatively & commonly used words together.
