This paper deals with the linguistic features of New Zealand English on different levels of linguistic analysis, based on the corpus of five movies. The most important features of NZE, as described in the literature on the subject, are summed up in the introductory theoretical part of the thesis. In the empirical part it is shown that apart from the well-known features found in the literature, there are also some others, noticed in the present corpus. In particular, some age-related differences were found, particularly those concerning the choice of British vs. American lexical items. However, generalisations of this kind would have to be based on more extensive research.
