Abstract

At the National Library of Norway, we are currently developing a service comparable to the Google Ngram Viewer (Michel et al., 2010; Lin et al., 2012; Aiden and Michel, 2013) called NB Ngram. It is based on all books and newspapers digitized up to and including 2013, as part of the large scale digitization project at the National Library of Norway. Uni-, bi- and trigams have been generated on the basis of this text corpus containing some 34 billion words. In this paper, we sketch the background of NB N-gram and illustrate some applications of it.
