Language Related TV Tropes

In a followup to my post from last week about the language section in the Snopes database of online myths and hoaxes, I’d like to share this link to the language section of TVtropes.org. The TV Tropes website was featured on the NPR radio show, On the Media, which explained that the show, which “catalogs some 20,000 plot devices and dialog conventions that show up throughout pop culture” is run in a wiki-like way, allowing for user contributions. As a result quality of the database is somewhat uneven, but it is still quite a useful resource for those interested in language in popular culture.
