Which words did President of the Republic George Abela use the most?

READ THE SPEECH hereAbela 2013 and Fenech Adami 2008

This Worlde will help you compared the way language is used by the preceding Nationalist government and the new Labour government. The one in 2008 was read by Eddie Fenech Adami (below) and was written by Lawrence Gonzi, while today's speech is read by George Abela and written by Joseph Muscat.



We've had to remove the word "government" because that would have covered the entire Worlde.

There is a clear difference in one aspect: the 2008 speech made major reference to "Malta" and "developmemt", but this year's speech uses "country" and "people" instead. "Work" remains a common theme.

"New" is however the word that stuck out in Abela's speech. It gets second ranking in the number of occurrences.
