    What buoys the European construction should accumulate symbolic notions. The creation of a success story such as the European construction should represent a formidable potential for optimism and excitement. The patterns of thought around which the European construction is organized must show something of the European identity. In order to test these three hypotheses, we analyze and compare 93 speeches made by President Delors over the period 1985-1984, and 28 by President Santer over the period 1995-1997. We have statistically analyzed all these speeches (n=121)--which words are used, how often, where, and when--with the help of a computer-aided content analysis package. Finally, using data-driven statistical techniques, we attempt to find out whether cut-off points exist that signal shifts in a process.
