The study is structured into three parts covering 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.
