This project is conducted by students Christopher Montgomery, Eric Hue, Elaina Zachos, and Zachary Enick under the guidance of Dr. David Birnbaum, Gabi Keane, and Kaylen Sanders in the course Computational Methods of the Humanities at the University of Pittsburgh. The scope of this research is to identify rhetorical patterns in candidate speech in the 2016 Presidential debates largely through the use of metaphorical language, word repetition, and referential terms.
