What if we organized all of Sarah Palin’s speeches into an unstructured corpus and ran a word-frequency linguistic analysis on that corpus? A Pareto Analysis of word-frequency in Sarah Palin’s speeches will give us a sense of what she cares about the most, assuming that [what she utters is what is on her mind] and [what is on her mind is what she cares about the most].
Below is what a computational linguist might see when her words are parsed into a word-frequency analysis and rendered as a Pareto Chart.
Note: this post is a parody — a joke. I’m sure Sarah Palin is a fine human being and I have nothing against her; this was just a fun way to demonstrate the Pareto Principle using current events.
