WordeeBee

What words appeared most frequently in the New York Times each year… since 1851? WordeeBee will tell you.

I think it’s even more interesting because WordeeBee includes proper nouns in their tallies. So, their lists give a good linguistic and historical snapshot of each year going back almost two whole centuries. Clicking on a word will give you more stats about it, like its usage and popularity over the years. Computer, for example, first appeared in the NYT way back in 1862, and its frequency peaked in 1999.
