Title: Dictionary of European Anglicisms
Subtitle: A Usage Dictionary of Anglicisms in Sixteen European Languages
Edited By: Manfred Görlach

The first dictionary of its kind to provide an exhaustive comparative
treatment of the influence of English on other European languages.
Covering sixteen selected languages from different language families,
entries consist of words which are recognizably English in form and which
appear in at least one of the languages tested. Entries are comprised of
a brief definition, followed by a summary paragraph containing a wealth of
historical and linguistic information. Many entries are also accompanied
by a grid summarizing the distribution of the word across Europe.
