Google Trend "bank Run"

Recommended Posts

Try the ngram viewer,

a nifty piece of googleware that shows you how many times a particular phrase appears in print per year.

Here is the one for "bank run":

Sounds interesting.

Does it also work for those horrible corporate bull-shit phrases that I refuse to utter...?

If so, does it take the 'view from 10000 feet', or a 'deep-dive' approach...

:)

yes,

you can also compare the occurence of phrases and so see paradigm changes as they occur. A guy I know told me a great one related to education but I've completely forgotten what it is :unsure: Long and short of it is that in the 60s one education phrase rapidly dropped out of the literature, whilst the other took off. not particularly helpful, but you get the point :)
