The aim of this project is to compare and contrast speeches and statements at the official level of the two governments on the island.
This can be easily visualized through a word-cloud where the size of each word relates to how commonly it is used.
To do this we go through a ton of text files containing statements since 2003 for Gc ones and 2008 for Tc ones. This is carried out semi-automatically through Processing and some manual control. We also apply filters so that words such as ‘say’ and ‘said’ are counted as the same word. Bellow you can see a first draft after processing some of the statements in Greek.
We got the technical part down, but there’s still quite a bit of work to do to get it being informative. If you want to help us make sense of all this data, we’d love your input.
