Qs: References for Research on Popular Culture (TV)

Editor for this issue: Dan Parker <danlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: References for Research on Popular Culture (TV)

Dear all,

I'm interested in research on popular culture, in particular linguistic
analyses of contemporary TV series such as ''Six Feet Under'', ''Sex and
the City'', ''Gilmore Girls'' etc. While I'm particularly interested in
references for corpus-based work, any information will be greatly appreciated.

I'm aware of the following research:

Bubel, C. 2006. ''The linguistic construction of character relations in TV
drama:Doing friendship in Sex and the City'' PhD dissertation, Universitaet
des Saarlandes (available online)

Mittman, B. 2006. ''With a little help from Friends (and others):
Lexico-pragmatic characteristics of original and dubbed film dialogue'',
in: Christoph Houswitschka, Gabriele Knappe, Anja Müller (Hrsg.):
Anglistentag 2005, Bamberg – Proceedings. Trier: WVT, 573-585.

Munt, S. R. 2006. ''Anxiety and reparation in the HBO television drama
series Six Feet Under''. Feminist Media Studies 6/3: 263-279.

Tagliamonte, S. & C. Roberts 2005. ''So weird, so cool, so innovative: the
use of intensifiers in the television series Friends''. American Speech
