In celebration of open access week, and because we would do it anyway, we’re making all of our raw data available here for consultation. We of course have our own ideas about how to represent and how to make sense of the data, but we’re always interested in other ideas as to what should be done with it. What other data do we need? If you have suggestions for particular words you’d like to know about, please post them.
