The Ngram: word usage and what it tells us.
Tonight I was introduced to the Google Ngram Viewer. If you have curiosity about word usage and change over time, this is for you.
Here’s my screen capture search of two words: skyscraper and high-rise.
The Google Ngram Viewer is a tool that charts the yearly count of words and phrases and graphs the usage in definable time periods.
For three days I will post more intriguing word searches.
Meanwhile, do you want to the try the Ngram yourself?
It would be fun to read about your interesting finds here in comments!
