For You N-Gram Fans

December 17, 2010

There are grams and n-grams. If you have not looked for occurrence data in the GOOG, navigate to If the link does not resolve, go to Google .com and enter the query “Google Books n-gram Viewer.” With a bit of effort, you can fire phrases words at the Google Book index and see counts.

I tested the phrase “information factory” and got no hits. My publisher has not made my monograph in which the phrase was used in the mid 1990s available. I ran a query on “information warfare” and there were no hits. Your queries may be more productive. The goose is too narrow for the service.
