Abstract

This article analyzes George Bush's State of the Union Address from January 2002 using methodology provided by recent research in corpus linguistics. It attempts to show how meaning is conveyed in a subtle way through use of lexical patterns, and how a text can be interpreted through comparison with a large corpus. As a result it is able to objectively identify implicit meaning by way of what is and is not explicitly said.
