Abstract:

English Words Abroad summarizes the methods developed for the
innovative multilingual Dictionary of European Anglicisms (G�rlach
2001, OUP) which combines data on English loanwords in sixteen
European languages (four each for Germanic, Slavic, Romance and
others). This summary allows us to quantify for the first time the
extent of the lexical impact of loanwords on individual languages and
cultures. The author discusses the elicitation of data from informants
with a high linguistic awareness; criteria for inclusion; problems of
integration on graphemic, phonological, morphological and
semantic/stylistic levels; and speakers' reactions (purism, language,
legislation). He then explores the possibilities of applying these
methods to dictionaries of gallicisms and germanisms. The book
includes a survey of the most recent dictionaries of anglicisms in
European languages.
