Subject Predicates

web
data

Using data from the Google Books Ngram Viewer, Subject Predicates visualizes the prevalence of particular pronouns when combined with certain actions. The text size of each pronoun-verb pair corresponds to its relative frequency in Google’s archive of scanned English books (~25 million books,) and the timeline can be adjusted to study fluctuations across years. The resulting ratios reflect social norms and developments embedded in published language, including gender, collective/individual, and personal/impersonal associations to activities. Visit site.
