New graph tool from Google Labs: Books N-grams Viewer

A fascinating tool launched recently by Google Labs: N-grams.

It graphs the frequency of occurrence of the terms (words, sentences)  you input from the more than 5 million books (starting from 1500?) that Google scanned.
The tool is working best in English but other languages as Chinese, French, German, Russian, and Spanish (unfortunately not Italian) are available.

You could play with it for hours …

ReadWriteWeb has some nice examples.

N-grams for religions
Major religions of the world.
