Diatopix 3.1

Diatopix is a tool that allows to graphically see the distribution of words, terms and expressions, etc. in a virtual web space delimited by a language. The tool uses Google's custom search engine and divides the results it receives between the main countries where the language is used (Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States).
To see what Diatopix can do, you can launch a query using the following:
The tool in itself does not prove anything but it can be used to confirm intuitions regarding word usage or to explore research leads that have to do with lexical variants from a geographical point of view.
In the current state of the tool, Diatopix cannot handle inflections. This basically means that to have a clear picture of the distribution of articulated lorry, you need to query both articulated lorry and articulated lorries.
