Following the first debate in the 2016 Republican primary contest aired on Fox News, Vocabulary.com released this list of the candidates’ vocabulary, showcasing the most relevant word for each of the ten candidates.
Making full use of the data-driven resources that power Vocabulary.com’s word-learning game, the analysis determines relevance by comparing the frequency with which candidates used words in the debate to the frequency with which those words appear in the Vocabulary.com corpus of texts. The corpus consists of 3.2 billion words (and growing), covering everything from classic literature to the latest news.
