Word frequency analysis

For these graphs we normalise the words used by the author to occurrences per million, and we calculate a similar normalised number of occurrences for the same word in each dialect. The author's norm is plotted against each dialect's norm in each graph.
If the dots line up with the diagonal line then the author is using words found in that dialect in about the typical frequency expected.
If the dots are below the dotted line, then the author's words are not found in the dialect as often as expected.
If the dots are along the y-axis, the words are not found in that dialect.
To save memory only the most frequent 200 words of the author's work are plotted.
