This paper explores the phenomenon of social and cultural markedness as a tool of literary expressiveness in modern English sitcoms using the methods of corpus linguistics. A case study was conducted on the example of the BBC sitcom “Upstart Crow”, using the mixed method of qualitative and quantitative analysis. Lexical units from the utterances of the characters belonging to different social classes were extracted from and processed through the spoken corpus of the British National Corpus (BNC) in order to conduct a comparative analysis and determine the characteristic features of the social and cultural markedness peculiar to a particular social class. This research also establishes the correlation between the specifics of the audiovisual translation and social markedness.
