“English” in Japanese
Akira Miura. A continuation of the author’s book, “English Loanwords in Japanese: A Selection” (1979). But this volume has more emphasis on the differences between English loanwords in Japanese & the original English words. Also deals with many more pseudo-loans, i.e. made-in-Japan “English” words. The book also offers sample sentences that include loanwords. Only loanwords of English origin are discussed. Words derived from French & German, for example, were excluded except for a few hybrids, i.e. compound words that are half English & half French or German. The Japanese have borrowed English words or created new pseudo-loans with tremendous vigor.
