Google Books Ngram Viewer shows the frequency of a word/phrase as it appears in books over time. Trends become apparent, and reflect the popularity and frequency of their use at any given time.

This event will introduce the Ngram Viewer and how to use it. We might even expand the discussion to the linguistic trends themselves: what is going on with language, and how trends reflect on society. And/or vice versa :)
