Comparison of word frequency in english literature


The scatterplot shows the frequency of occuring words for two sets of texts. You click on one circle and you see the words for it on the left hand side. The app is built on d3.js (my second small project using it) and I am planning to write an introductory article on it soon. Apart from a few issues it is fun to work with d3.

Texts are obtained from Project Gutenberg.
