Denglisch (German spelling) or Denglish (English spelling) is a portmanteau of the German words Deutsch and Englisch. Used in all German-speaking countries, it describes an influx of English, or pseudo-English, vocabulary into the German language through travel and English's widespread usage in advertising, business and IT. Synonyms are Gerglish, Angleutsch and Engleutsch. While some feel that this influx, similar to the import of Latin and French words in the past, makes the language more expressive, in many sectors of society it remains controversial, notably with older generations who are often less accustomed to English terms. von Miller, Frederic P.
