For this “Conference by the Numbers” I’ll be short on commentary. If you’d like to read more about how I do the word counting, I highly recommend you read some of my previous posts (see links below).

A few notable words from this conference include momentum (see President Nelson’s talk) and fold (see talk by Elder Funk). You may also be interested to see how some of these words or phrases have been used over the years.

And while prevail did not make it onto the chart this conference, it did show up above average, so I decided to highlight its usage over time.
