182nd Semiannual General Conference Tag Clouds

At This Week in Mormons, we value looking at the Gospel from every angle, and this includes finding creative ways to encapsulate the messages received in General Conference. One of these ways is to create tag clouds that graphically represent the most-used words in the talks of General Conference.

The first tag cloud represents all five sessions of General Conference. Please note – we omitted “in the name of…” at the end of every talk not because it isn’t important, but because it is universal and would unfairly affect the tag clouds.

The remaining tag clouds are for each individual session of General Conference, so that you can see any common trends (we kinda love that “PRIESTHOOD” regularly shows up ginormously). We hope you’ll enjoy this fun way of visualizing General Conference.
