We present a new version of the Google Books Ngram Viewer, which plots the fre- quency of words and phrases over the last five centuries; its data encompasses 6% of the world?s published books. The new Viewer adds three features for more pow- erful search: wildcards, morphological in- flections, and capitalization. These addi- tions allow the discovery of patterns that were previously difficult to find and fur- ther facilitate the study of linguistic trends in printed text.
