"""English in Europe"" charts the English invasion of Europe since
1945. Sixteen distinguished European scholars report on the English
words and phrases that have become integral parts of their
languages. Each describes the effect of English on the host
language, and shows how the process of incorporation often modifies
pronunciation and spelling and frequently transforms meaning and
use. The languages surveyed are Icelandic, Dutch, French, Spanish,
Norwegian, German, Italian, Romanian, Polish, Croatian, Finnish,
Albanian, Russian, Bulgarian, Hungarian, and Greek. The book is
designed as a companion to ""A Dictionary of European Anglicisms""
but may be read as an independent work. This is the first
systematic survey of a phenomenon that is fascinating, alarming,
and apparently unstoppable. "
