Google Ngram Viewer

Google Ngram Viewer is a section of Google I discovered yesterday and i was fully unaware of its existence before. Ngram allows any user to perform chronological trend searches on keyword for their frequency of use on the internet.

These kind of searches and this trend information on keywords, terms, names, locations, etc, might be useful for qualitative research on political events/concepts and their popularity (frequency of online queries) over the years.

I certainly advice you to experiment with the platform, and who knows you might get inspired for new researches by it!
