Word frequency analysis

This table displays the word frequencies for the author's works in the corpus, and the frequencies normalised to per 100,000. The normalised word frequencies for the entire corpus and each dialect are displayed. The colour represents how far the author's usage frequency deviates from that dialect.
This should highlight things like differences in the regional dialect, or character names, or the spelling preferences of the author. The dialect column with the fewest coloured cells is likely to be the author's natural dialect.
