The new toy allows you to search words in 5 million books since 1500, analyzing trends in the use of such word. Used properly, it may be evidence of cultural relevance of the word.

God and Government
http://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=God%2CGovernment&year_start=1500&year_end=2000&corpus=0&smoothing=3

Rights and Duties
http://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=rights%2C+duties&year_start=1500&year_end=2000&corpus=0&smoothing=3

A very interesting one: sex and pleasure
http://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=sex%2Cpleasure&year_start=1500&year_end=2000&corpus=0&smoothing=3

People wrote more about pleasure when they wrote less about sex. At about the 60s and 70s, the more people talked about sex the less they cared about pleasure.

Liberty and equality
http://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=liberty%2Cequality&year_start=1500&year_end=2000&corpus=0&smoothing=3

"I want" and "I love"
http://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=I+want%2C+I+love&year_start=1500&year_end=2000&corpus=0&smoothing=3

Future and Past
http://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=future%2C+past&year_start=1500&year_end=2000&corpus=0&smoothing=3

Faith and reason

Science, religion, philosophy and art

c. 1665 has a huge spike in pleasure, but with no sex. What's up with that?

Wasn't there a plague in 1665?
