What is a concordance
A concordance is the list of significant terms in a text along with the context in which those terms appear. The first major concordance for an English text was published in 1550 for the Bible. Later on concordances were created for the works of Shakespeare and other major authors. In 2016 WhoSaidSo Network applied the concept of concordance to the transcripts of the United States Presidential Debates. In the "WhoSaidSo.Org" website there are about 90 pages crafted in the style of a concordance that juxtapse views of differnt candidates on all campaign issues.
