What’s in a speech?

When you listen to a speech being given what are the key words or phrases that you pick out from it?

Try listening to this one by Hosni Mubarak from February 10 2011. What’s the message you take from it?

Then look at this visualisation of the speech which I have created using Many Eyes.

Mubarak speech Many Eyes

Taken out of context would you have guessed it was Mubarak’s speech?

Are the bare bones of speeches innately similar or are they immediately recognisable?
