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.

Manfred Golach, a scholar well-known for his excellent studies in the field of historical linguistics and on the varieties of English around the world, has come up with an extraordinary idea: that of producing a dictionary of anglicisms which can be found no later than 1995 in sixteen European languages, belonging to different language families. The information presented in the dictionary is very rich. * Anglia - Zeitschrift fur Englische Philologie * ... remarkable lexicographic work, a first of its kind, and a rich source of information not easily found elsewhere. * Anglia - Zeitschrift fur Englische Philologie * The volumes edited by Manfred Gorlach form a homogeneous whole and represent the most complete, systematic, and up-to-date study of the impact of English on Europe. Their importance can hardly be overestimated: lexicographers, linguists and students interested in linguistic variation and change, in comparative linguistic studies, and translators will find in them an invaluable aid for their work. Manfred Golach and his team deserve our warmest congratulations. * Anglia - Zeitschrift fur Englische Philologie * Manfred Gorlach ... is a linguistic Sherpa Tenzing leading a whole team of Hillarys. * Times Higher Education Supplement * The trilogy is a triumph of conception, design and implementation. * Times Higher Education Supplement *
