Word frequencies distributed by genre across year/volume.

4.3: The Masses transcripts organized by volume and genre both

The words in each of the seven volume/year groupings below are the very same words–except for all instances of [pgbrk], which have been deleted here–that appear in section 4.1: Masses transcripts organized by volume/year. The difference is that while the text in the 4.1 volumes is ordered chronologically by issue (e.g., 1.1, 1.2, 1.3), the text in the groupings below is ordered by genre (e.g., ads, articles, contents, drama). This configuration allows us to explore how words from the Masses’ nine genres are distributed within each year/volume of the magazine.
