Abstract:

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