Google Ngram Viewer

N-gram is defined as "contiguous sequence of n items from a given sequence of text or speech... can be phonemes, syllables, letters, words or base pairs" in Wikipedia.

GoogleBooks n-gram application will display "the annual popularity of any published word or phrase over the last several centuries." (nytimes)

I searched 4 composers: Bach, Beethoven, Debussy, Tchaikovsky. Below the graph, you will see links of search results broken down to different eras.

Mousing over the data points, there seemed to be a spike for these composers in 1946:

Case-sensitive names display different results (which kind of makes sense because the data is from books, not other media):
ngram_caseSensitive1.jpg

ngram_caseSensitive2.jpg

ngram_caseSensitive3.jpg

You can use "+" to combine case-sensitive terms (in this case I combined "dna+DNA, cancer+Cancer, gene+Gene."

Cancer+cancer:

Gene+gene:
caseSensitive_02.jpg

DNA+dna:
