Your graphs include 2 new terms which are ending with fuLL. I don't think it's correct.

@PeterShor: Why don't you convert your above comments into an answer for the record? I would definitely give an upvote myself.

comment Is it “quit” or “quitted”?
@Matt: I think you should replace your graph with the one FumbleFingers gave. The keywords you used may be misleading. The keyword "quit work" does not necessarily have to be simple past or past participle. It may be preceded by auxiliary verbs like will, would, may, can, could, must, etc. In that sense, your graph is misleading, but FumbleFingers' example provides us with a good insight.

comment “Lowercase”, “lower-case”, or “lower case”
@Robusto: I'll remove lower-case and add lower - case to my answer, but still this is not misleading. Usage of lower-case is still less than the other two.
