Description:

This is a collection of papers presented at the conference «Anglo-German
Linguistic Relations», held at Queen Mary, University of London in November
2007. The papers cover a wide variety of topics about the relationship
between the English and German languages or relate to cultural and literary
contacts between English-speaking and German-speaking regions. Individual
papers discuss Anglo-German linguistic interplay and affinities both as
contemporary phenomena and from a historical perspective. Themes include
codification, translation and discourse production from the 17th century to
the Second World War; shared metaphors in English and German; political
propaganda in English and German; and authorial positioning and perspective
in a selection of autobiographical and literary works.
