THE POLITICAL EVENT: Word Plays & Patterns found in the State of the Union Addresses

24Feb11

After the State of the Union Address January 25, 2011 this graphic emerged in the New York Times, visually representing speech patterns evident in State of the Union Addresses from FDR to Obama. This article allows us to note patterns of word usage (note the usage of Power starting from 1934, or Terror after 2000). Graphic Design is a tool that easily distinguishes this information and allows us to see patterns that cross time periods and parties. Enjoy!
