Word cloud: Daily Kos vs. RedState

Monday, March 15, 2010

Wow, using Wordle is really fun. Here's what happens when you compare the words on the front page of Daily Kos (a site for Democrats) vs. those on RedState (a site for Republicans), minus most of the irrelevant but frequent words like comment, post, link, profile, etc. First Daily Kos:

And now RedState.

Dank spollay Dave !

I have just used it with Sambahsa and it works great ! Such a tool is very useful for the study of Sambahsa, a language with (albeit regular) declinations and conjugations which gives the feeling it looks harder than it really is. If I have the time, I'll test it with the major texts written in Sambahsa and thus will offer "vocabulary keys" to help their reading.

Looking forward to that. You definitely have enough content that it should give a pretty good idea of the most frequent words in the language. Don't forget that you can set it to show you the most frequent 100, 200, 1000, or however many you like.

As Russell Peters would say, "What do you think?"

Isn't it funny that the republicans are called the Redstate?
