Another post in honor of Valentine’s Day, and a double-whammy at that. Today we have two infographics from Unplag, a website that checks papers for plagiarism.
Ever wonder how much love is in a love story? In this first infographic, according to Unplag:
We analyzed 2,365,012 words from 10 most popular romantic stories (Romeo and Juliet, The Notebook, 50 Shades of Grey, Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, Gone with the Wind, Jane Eyre, The Great Gatsby, Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, Twilight), and counted the following words: love(r, ing), hate, death, heart, relationship, affection, passion, and wedding. Below you can see our findings. They really surprised us a lot. Just take a look!
Next up, want to know what happens at the end of a typical love story? (Spoiler alerts for the 18 novels Unplag analyzed: Romeo and Juliet, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Cyrano de Bergerac, Madame Bovary, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Anna Karenina, The Master and Margarita, Gone With The Wind, Thorn Birds, The Great Gatsby, Love in the Time of Cholera, The Phantom of the Opera, Bridget Jones’s Diary Series, The Notebook, Twilight Series, and Fifty Shades of Grey Series.)
According to Unplag:
For all these stories we’ve managed to define six the most typical endings. Here they are: death, marriage, children, staying together, separation, and unrequited love.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
