This summary allows us to quantify for the first time the extent of the lexical impact of loanwords on individual languages and cultures. The author discusses the elicitation of data from informants with a high linguistic awareness- criteria for inclusion- problems of integration on graphemic, phonological, morphological and semantic/stylistic levels- and speakers reactions (purism, language, legislation). He then explores the possibilities of applying these methods to dictionaries of gallicisms and germanisms.

The book includes a survey of the most recent dictionaries of anglicisms in European languages.
