George W. Bush’s Third “State of the Union” Address (January 28, 2003)

Transcript taken from here. This is part of a project on George W. Bush’s State of the Union addresses, others are visible here.

Process notes: Tag cloud created by Wordle.net. Some words combined into phrases for improved frequency analysis: “Saddam Hussein” is combined as “SaddamHussein,” “Al Qaeda” is combined as “AlQaeda,” “United States” is combined as “UnitedStates.” “Million,” when used with a number, is combined with that number (so “92 million” is counted as “92million,” but “a million” is treated separately.) Possessive apostrophes have been removed along with their accompanying “s”s, so “America‚Äôs” is counted along with “America,” for instance.
