Congressional concordance

March 2, 2012

I just learned about the website http://capitolwords.org which organizes the words used Congress (since ’96) and presents them in interesting ways.

For example, check out:
http://capitolwords.org/?terma=government+accountability+office&statea=&partya=&termb=general+accounting+office&stateb=&partyb=
http://capitolwords.org/state/DC/
http://capitolwords.org/term/peripatetic
http://capitolwords.org/?terma=love&termb=hate

Did you find any interesting word counts?
