Text Mining Early Printed English

EEBO N-gram Browser

Select a corpus from the drop-down, enter query terms, check (or not) graph smoothing, and click Go!

If you select the "original spellings (1 grams, no pos)" corpus, your query term should consist of:

  • A whole word (love) or words separated by commas (love,loue), or
  • A regular expression (/lo[uv]e/) or expressions separated by commas (/lo[uv]e/,/abo[uv]e/). Note that "/" delimiters are required for regular expressions.

If you select the "standardized spellings (1 and 2 grams w/pos)" corpus, you query term should consist of

  • A whole word (love) or words separated by commas (love,loue), or
  • A pair of words (love for) or pairs of words separated by commas(love for,love of), or
  • A regular expression (/love_.+/) or expressions separated by commas (/love_.+/,/above_.+/). Note that in this corpus, underscore and nupos part-of-speech code are appended to the word proper, so regular expressions should take this into account (for whole word queries, we automatically append a wildcard so all parts-of-speech codes are looked up).
  • A pair if regular expression (/love_.+ for_.+/) or pairs expressions separated by commas (/love_.+ for_.+/,/love_.+ of_.+/).
  • It's possible to query for a specific word and part of speech by appending an underscore and the nupos part-of-speech code to the word (e.g., /love_np1/).

For more about regular expressions, please see our post on Using the N-gram Browser. More a full list of the nupos part-of-speech codes, please see the section titled "Parts of Speech Table" in Morphology and NUPOS, an article written by John Norstad.
