Suggested possible sources[edit]

Some suggested possible sources to look into, were first recommended, here. Looks like about 4 sources that could be of some use. — Cirt (talk) 05:42, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Formatted cites for these:
  • Lim, Elvin T. (2008). "The Substantive Impoverishment of Presidential Rhetoric". The Anti-Intellectual Presidency. Oxford University Press. pp. 71–73. ISBN 9780195342642. Well over half of all references to children in State of the Union addresses since 1790 were uttered by our last five presidents 

Of the above, the book by Lim 2008 and the book review by McLemee 2008 are useful, and could be added to the article.

The Salmon 1997 thesis is not directly relevant.

The 1999 article in Political Communication is very relevant.

The 2006 article in the journal Polity is less relevant than the 1999 article in Political Communication, but could be looked at to see if it has any brief mentions on this topic that are interesting.

I'll add the most directly relevant ones to the Further reading sect, for now, pending more analysis. — Cirt (talk) 18:50, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Lim 2002[edit]

Lim 2002, research later published in his book as cited, above. — Cirt (talk) 21:30, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
