Thody (French, U. of Leeds) describes the attempt by French politicians to forbid by law the use of words of English and American origin. He presents examples of common expressions in the English language for concepts that are particularly difficult to render in French, considering such realms as business, politics, food and drink, the arts and sports, and youth and entertainment. In turn he discusses the French words used in English for the same reason. Paper edition (unseen), $25.00. Distributed in the US by Humanities Press. Annotation c.
