Title: Entlehnung in der Kommunikation und im Sprachwandel [Borrowing and Integration of Loanwords from the Perspective of the Speaker]
Subtitle: Theorie und Analysen zum Französischen
Written By: Esme Winter-Froemel
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?isbn=9783110235050&sel=pi
Series Title: De Gruyter Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 360
Description:

This work analyzes current borrowings and integration of loan words in the
French language and in other Romance languages. The studied phenomena are
analyzed exclusively from the perspective of the speakers. The main aim is to
elucidate the complexity of these processes - how language undergoes change -
and to work out a model which is adequate with respect to communication
theory. In particular, the study takes into account the occurrence of competing
forms of loan words that differ from each other in their degree of integration.
