Subtitle: Motives for Adopting English Vocabulary in Other Languages
Series Title: Multilingual Matters
Publisher: Multilingual Matters
The volume examines the motives for lexical borrowing from English during the last century, the processes involved in the penetration of English vocabulary into new environments, and the extent of its integration into twelve languages representing several language families.
