"A glossary of English loan words and Anglicisms - Denglisch or Denglish - commonly used in German.

There are several definitions of Denglisch, but the word basically refers to the excessive use of English (and pseudo English) vocabulary in German. For the details, see Denglisch: When Languages Collide. In the Denglisch Dictionary below, each entry lists (1) the Denglisch term with its gender, (2) its meaning to German-speakers, and (3) the German word(s) for the term, if any. (Note: In most cases the German term is rarely used.) Some words (das Handy, der Smoking, etc.) link to a more in-depth explanation or clarification."
