This companion volume to the Dictionary of European Anglicisms and English in Europe (also edited by Professor Görlach) provides a critical bibliography of works concerned with the import of English words and phrases into sixteen European languages. The book covers an international range of foreign-word dictionaries, etymological dictionaries, and general dictionaries; books and articles devoted to the influence of English on the language in question; works restricted to individual levels of influence (e.g. phonology, morphology, etc.); works dealing with the English influence in specific fields, in individual styles, regions, or social classes; corpus-oriented studies; and major works documenting earlier influences of English.
The trilogy is a triumph of conception, design and implementation. Times Higher Education Supplement Manfred Gorlach ... is a linguistic Sherpa Tenzing leading a whole team of Hillarys. Times Higher Education Supplement 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 ... offers critical bibliographical information.
