Chapter 2.1 Dimensions of variation in North American movies
This chapter investigates variation in the verbal language of 640 North American movies released between 1930 and 2010, taking into account situational variables such as movie genres, year of release in the United States, public and critic ratings, movie length, directors, movie studios, nature of the script (original/adapted), as well as awards/nominations received. A Multi-Dimensional analysis proposes seven dimensions of variation for the register and uses the identified situational variables to partially explain the variation found within the register across the years. The results indicated that movie genres, year of release, movie length, nature of the script, and awards/nominations received are the variables that account for the variation observed.
