Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Japanizing English
Subtitle: Anglicisms and their impact on Japanese
Written By: Johannes Scherling
URL: http://www.narr-shop.de/index.php/japanizing-english.html
Series Title: AAA, Vol. 24
Description:

This book deals with the topic of English loanwords in the Japanese language.
Due to strong American influence after WW II, Anglicisms have become a
monopolizing force among Western loanwords in Japan and make up about 90%
of their stock, and almost 10% of the entire Japanese vocabulary. This
monograph explores, among other things, their history, creation, functions and
exemplary integration into the language, which assimilates loanwords
completely into the Japanese phonological and morphological system. It
analyzes reactions from politics and society and deals extensively with the
issue of comprehension, showing that Anglicisms can indeed be an enrichment
to a language, even in great numbers.
