English in Europe charts the English invasion of Europe since 1945. 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 of English words and frequently transforms their 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The trilogy is a triumph of conception, design and implementation. * Times Higher Education Supplement *
Manfred Goerlach ... is a linguistic Sherpa Tenzing leading a whole team of Hillarys. * Times Higher Education Supplement *
The volumes edited by Manfred Goerlach 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 Goelach and his team deserve our warmest congratulations. * Anglia - Zeitschrift fur Englische Philologie *
... an orderly, comprehensive survey. * Anglia - Zeitschrift fur Englische Philologie *
