This question is not Russian language-related strictly speaking, but I think it's useful for a lot of people using the language. I wonder if it is possible to use the ruscorpora.ru website to build the comparative word usage frequency distribution by year for two (or more) words. I have found the user manual, but couldn't find the answer there.

For example, I'd like to compare the words скакалка and прыгалки, i.e. have these two plots — first and second — plotted in the common axes.

If you are looking for juxtaposition-ed plots, you can do this:

search-beta.ruscorpora.ru/ngram.xml?mode=main&t1=скакалка&t2=прыгалки&start=1800&end=2010&smoothing=3

You can start by clicking "графики" on the home page of ruscorpora.
