weaselwords

Description of the project

Numerically vague expressions, adverbs that weaken, use of passive voice... Politicians and journalists can use a lot of these writing techniques to make their intention more attractive, less disturbing. The purpose of findingweaselwords is to permit people to see and become more aware of those weasel words, that is, equivocal words. It is a Firefox extension that animates these words and also gives a statistic feedback, which can be useful for compare two speeches for example.
