Query:   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:
