Enda and Obama, analysed

This link is interesting: it shows the speech and inflection patterns in Enda Kenny's and Barack Obama's recent discourses.

I have been absolutely loving all of my friend's Facebook posts about the Obama and Queen visits. It was a fantastic time to be in Dublin at Trinity, that's for sure. Big ups to my friend Jane McGowan who had the chance to see the Obama speech at Trinity -- she is involved with Amnesty at Trinity like I was -- but who had her final exam for her law degree the same day!!! She was seriously considering bunking off her exam to see the speech, but she didn't, and now she has graduated, so good woman girl!!!!
