Thank you for your Original Content, /u/leme16!
Here is some important information about this post:
Recently I had posted Average word count at State of the Union address by POTUS and their Most Distinguishing words. I had clubbed together all the addresses by each president, whereas here I have plotted year-wise. Also, last time, I had used very rudimentary method to extract most distinguished words. In this post I have used scikit-learn's TF-IDF (shout out to /u/TaXxER for suggestion). Also, I had made mistake of counting characters rather than words, fixed that too.
Does anyone know what president H.W. Bush was talking about "Schwarzkopf"? As far as I know, that a German hair product producer, so I'm kinda confused. English isn't my first language, does this have another meaning?
Are the personal names in the word lists public figures (like Paul Ryan), or just human-interest stories that got told (like Joe The Plumber)? Because the latter is a lot harder to understand for those who didn't hear the speech.
One non-public-figure example is Rebekah, an American "hit hard by the economic downturn" who got a nod in Obama's 2015 speech.
Most words seem to be about some sort of topic, while Trumps primary words are names. Not sure if that is my Trump bias getting in the way, or if that's an actual thing.
What i'm seeing is actually the swing back and forth red and blue and how the US population never seems to get what they want because they try it out and hold on for 8 or so years and then swing back the other way because it's not working.
TIL: "Semantic satiation" is a psychological phenomenon in which repetition causes a word or phrase to temporarily lose meaning for the listener, who then perceives the speech as repeated meaningless sounds
