Book Information


Title: Cover Strategien der Integration und Isolation nicht-nativer Einheiten und Strukturen
Subtitle: [Strategies of Integration and Isolation of Non-Native Units and Structures]
Edited By: Carmen Scherer
Anke Holler
Series Title: Linguistische Arbeiten 532

This volume studies how speakers deal with loanwords from foreign
languages. Are foreign words adapted in pronunciation, writing, flexion and
syntax to the recipient language or do they keep characteristics of the
language of their origin? Do loan units change the system of the recipient
language or do they get changed by it? Methodical considerations to
identify foreign words supplement these studies on German, Polish, Hebrew
and Japanese.
