English loanwords constitute a worldwide linguistic and socio-cultural phenomenon nowadays. Globalisation and technological advances have created a world of interconnectedness, in which English is the language of global communication. The lexicon of Romanian is increasingly influenced by the encroachment of English, especially in the online communication of younger generations.
Anglicisms in Romanian Online Communication Between Theory and Practice presents an analysis of English loanwords both from a descriptive and an applicative perspective. A lexical and semantic analysis of various widely used Anglicisms in online communication is followed by the presentation of a number of modern teaching concepts and practical methods. These exploit students’ knowledge of English loanwords in order to facilitate the acquisition of English as a second language.
