Dear darling friends,
Google Books Ngram viewer is a very interesting tool. It shows how writers have been using words since the 1800’s till recently. What makes it brilliant is the comparison charts between words.
I typed in two conflicting words – ‘Love and Hate’. I was a little sad yet VERY delighted with the results. Let me explain the contradiction!
Around 1980, out of 10,00,000 (a millions) words keyed in – 2 were ‘HATE’ and the word ‘LOVE’ was written about 7 times.
In 2019, out of 1,00,000 words keyed in – 4 were ‘HATE’ and 28 was ‘LOVE’.
A very simplistic assessment is, while HATE has doubled (sadly), LOVE has grown four times (yipeeeeee). There! I have explained my contradictory emotions.
I would love to see that day when HATE is used only as a reference to the past and less than once in a million. I would love to read LOVE as a counter reference and as a LIVING force in the present hundreds of times. I believe the only word that is more powerful than the word LIFE is the word LOVE.
What do you think my darling friend?
