Is it possible to download this dataset somehow? I get linked to here, but there is also the ngram viewer. Working With Google Ngrams: A Data-Wrangling Tale tells the story that it's no longer really possible to download it I guess, but can't totally tell.

The original Google blog post from 2006 says "the data belongs to you" and seems to have released it for download at some point. The python ngram downloader project seems like it will download it, but not sure if the data is too large to fit on a laptop or something, or what it does.

Any tips or suggestions on how to get these word frequency lists would be great.
