RESOURCE: Bookworm for Movies and TV

Ben Schmidt (Northeastern University) has created an online tool that allows users to “investigate onscreen language in about 87,000 movies and TV shows, encompassing together over 600 million words.”

Bookworm: Movies draws on a corpus from Open Subtitles and metadata from IMDb to chart changing language use in film and television dialogue, using the Bookworm platform.
