Wazzzz up dogs

Post your review notes here.

I chose the words 'Chihuahua,' 'Sheltie,' and 'Jack Russel.' In the time frame of 1950- 2008, Chihuahuas are much more frequent than the other two breeds. Between 1952 and 1958, Shelties and Jack Russells seem to be pretty equal, but other than that, Jack Russells run above Shelties. There are several spikes in the Chihuahua line, while the others remain relatively smooth.

I think that the frequency of Chihuahuas is at its peak around 2004 because people started becoming more attracted to smaller dogs. Jack Russells might seem to be equal between 1952 and 1958 because they are both dogs used for hunting and farming, which was more popular back then.

I chose the words "gun", "violence", and "bomb". Looking at this chart, violence seems to decrease until the 1910s, where it stays low until about 1950. Now, although usage of the word has decreased slightly in recent years, it is almost as high as it was back in the 1800s. This could be because during wartime, when usage of the word "violence" is at a low, we consider it to be justified. After the wars are over, usage of the word increases again, because dangerous actions are considered violent once again. However, the words "gun" and "bomb" both spike at the times of the two World Wars and become more level on either side of them. This is most likely due to people thinking less about weapons outside of wartime and a lot of writing at the times of the wars about the weapons and techniques being used.

The three words i chose were Haley, Hailey, and Hayley and the outcome was interesting. the spelling Hayley was very popular from 1800-1840, but fluctuating during that time. Since then it has been significantly lower, while the spelling Haley had a gradual incline, with Hailey following close behind. My prediction for the popularity of the spelling Hayley is because of William Hayley, who was a writer during that time. Haley has rose in popularity since the 1960's, most likely because it is a common girl name.

The three words I choose were Katherine, Catherine, and Katie. As I expected, Catherine was and still is the most popular out of the three. Catherine the Great was born in 1729, this makes sense because there was a huge peak around then. The name definitely lived on. Katherine and Katie are less popular. I predicted that Katie would be low because it is usually just a nickname.

I decided to look up the words immigrants, race, native. The word immigrant is increasing pretty consistently. Race started increasing in the 1820- 1890 then took a steep decrease until 1990 when it began to increase again. The word native has been decreasing after being high in the 1860s. I believe that the reasoning for the changes in the frequency was for the time periods. Immigrants has been used for awhile but its easier to travel now. Race was going down because at points of low travel, many people viewed themselves similar to one another. It goes back up we see travel more often. Native is going down because of many people changing their location, anyone can be from anywhere.

I chose Russia, Revolution, and Communism as my three words. Russia had reached its max usage in 1917 at the end of WWI and the subsequent beginning of the Russian Revolution. Of course during the same period of time Revolution began to rise up in usage as well as during the 1960s mostly due to the political upheaval the US was experiencing during the time. Communism didn't reach its peach usage until 1963 during the height of the Cold War. All of the terms have steadied out since and have not been used as much as before.

The three words I chose were Electoral College, House of Representatives, and Senate. According to the data collected on the chart, these words peaked in the early 1800s. I inferred from this data that they peaked when they did because of the thirteen colonies in the New World seceding from Great Britain and their democratic influence on the world.
