"The trilogy is a triumph of conception, design and implementation." - Times Higher Education Supplement
"Manfred Görlach ... is a linguistic Sherpa Tenzing leading a whole team of Hillarys." - Times Higher Education Supplement
"The volumes edited by Manfred Görlach form a homogeneous whole and represent the most complete, systematic, and up-to-date study of the impact of English on Europe. Their importance can hardly be overestimated: lexicographers, linguists and students interested in linguistic variation and change, in comparative linguistic studies, and translators will find in them an invaluable aid for their work. Manfred Gölach and his team deserve our warmest congratulations." -

"Manfred Gölach, a scholar well-known for his excellent studies in the field of historical linguistics and on the varieties of English around the world, has come up with an extraordinary idea: that of producing a dictionary of anglicisms which can be found no later than 1995 in sixteen European languages, belonging to different language families."
