Bailout, climate change top buzzwords after Obama election

world Updated: Oct 25, 2009 10:56 IST

Bailout, climate change, liberal and health care reform have been named top political buzzwords since the US President Barack Obama's inaugural.

Global Language Monitor, a group that studies word usage, has also named recession, Sarah Palin and the phrase 'change you can believe in' in the top 10.

"The top political buzzwords used since the Obama inaugural show the sharp trajectory of his presidency," said Paul J J Payack, GLM's chief word analyst.

"Our analysis differs from polls in that it is not what people say they think about various topics, but rather is a measurement of what words are actually being used and in which context," he said.

According to GLM, Wall Street bailout still resonates at very high score and there is no shrinkage while climate change remains one of the top three buzzwords for several years.

The list was prepared from a proprietary algorithm by tracking the frequency of words and phrases in the global print and electronic media, on the Internet, throughout the blogosphere, as well as accessing proprietary databases.
