9780198237143: English in Europe

Twenty-two scholars in sixteen European countries chart the English invasion of their national languages over the last five decades. They examine the particular groups of English words that have been adopted and the ways in which their meanings have been modified and in some cases transformed. They also consider the popular and political reactions over Europe to the influx of anglicisms.

Review:

... an orderly, comprehensive survey. * Anglia - Zeitschrift fur Englische Philologie * The volumes edited by Manfred Gorlach form a homogeneous whole and represent the most complete, systematic, and up-to-date study of the impact of English on Europe. Their importance can hardly be overestimated: lexicographers, linguists and students interested in linguistic variation and change, in comparative linguistic studies, and translators will find in them an invaluable aid for their work. Manfred Golach and his team deserve our warmest congratulations. * Anglia - Zeitschrift fur Englische Philologie * Manfred Gorlach ... is a linguistic Sherpa Tenzing leading a whole team of Hillarys. * Times Higher Education Supplement * The trilogy is a triumph of conception, design and implementation. * Times Higher Education Supplement *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.English in Europe charts the English invasion of Europe since 1945. Distinguished European scholars report on the English words and phrases that have become integral parts of their languages. Each describes the effect of English on the host language, and shows how the process of incorporation often modifies pronunciation and spelling of English words and frequently transforms their meaning and use. The languages surveyed are Icelandic, Dutch, French, Spanish, Norwegian, German, Italian, Romanian, Polish, Croatian, Finnish, Albanian, Russian, Bulgarian, Hungarian, and Greek. The book is designed as a companion to A Dictionary of European Anglicisms but may be read as an independent work. This is the first systematic survey of a phenomenon that is fascinating, alarming, and apparently unstoppable. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780198237143
