Anglicisms in German : Borrowing, Lexical Productivity, and Written Codeswitching / von Alexander Onysko


The book offers a detailed account of the influence of English in German based on a large scale corpus analysis of the newsmagazine ‘Der Spiegel’. The study is structured into three parts each of which deals with fundamental questions and as of yet unsolved and disputed issues in the domain of anglicism research and language contact. Among the findings of the book are a model of the influence of English on German, a principled classification of the term anglicism, data about the numerical impact of English in German, and conclusive investigations of how anglicisms are structurally integrated and used in German discourse.
