Lexical Statistics: Version 2019.11

This page presents Word Count Charts and Lexical Item Charts for the "Corpus of Historical Japanese" Version 2019.11.

  • Word Count Charts assemble word counts (in two types: word counts including punctuation marks, and word counts not including punctuation marks) according to Sample ID, Core/non-core data, Main text type, and Style.
  • The Lexical Item Charts assemble data on word counts for lemmas according to Historical period and literary work. For each work in each historical period, there is information on how many times each lemma is attested, and there is a filter such as those in Excel and other applications, allowing data to be sorted and refined by reference to such factors as part of speech and lexical type.
