The Monco corpus search engine: "Language changes as we speak. New words and new senses of familiar words are coined and recorded in dictionaries every year. Daily frequencies of 'content words' vary immensely as they are chosen to report events in the media. Words such as ‘vape’, ‘hangry’ or ‘emoji’ are either heavily under-represented or not present at all in reference corpora of English which were compiled only a few years ago. Also, within days, frequencies of words such as ‘migrant’ or ‘refugee’ may become relatively higher than ever before. Monco can help you keep track of such variation."
