Series Title: De Gruyter Studium
Description:

Which loan words exist in current German, what is their origin and what role do
they play within the German vocabulary as a whole? For the first time, this book
describes in a systematic and easy-to-read manner how an important and
multifaceted part of German vocabulary has been developing for centuries and
still is evolving today. Knowledge of facts is the best advisor even in public
controversies on loan words, and this is why the book is aimed at a wider
audience. Where special knowledge is required, the reader will find complete and
easy-to-understand explanations.
