    Ngram is fun. Thanks for that! I just wasted several minutes tracking fantasy races
    elves, dwarves, orcs
    gnomes, pixies, elves
    etc.
    a pity it doesn't go further back than 1800.

    All three books are on my to-be-bought list - the Emotion Thesaurus, and the Positive and Negative Trait Thesaurus's. They really do look like very useful resources.

    This book helps finding alternatives to less easily defined emotions. It is easy to remember synonyms for happy or sad, as an example. Emotions like perplexed or melancholy, not so much.

    The Emotion Thesaurus is a great reference. Although I love ebooks, I prefer the paperback version of this. It's sitting on my desk now.
