The English Language and Anglo-American Culture: Its Impact on Spanish Language and Society explores the effects of globalisation on Spanish language and society. It analyses the impact of the English language and Anglo-American culture on Spanish language and culture. This book compiles four different studies that provide evidence of the increasingly pervasive presence of English in Spanish daily life. The areas covered include: analyses of shop windows from different shopping centres in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, which display Christmas greetings in English, rather than Spanish; exploration of some of the most frequently used techniques to translate the titles of Anglo-American films; a study of the use of anglicisms in the Spanish edition of the film magazine Cahiers du Cinema; research on the attitudes of a sample of Spanish students towards English; reflection on the emergence of a certain sense of identity towards English and Anglo-American culture among Spaniards; and some activities that invite reflection on the issues dealt with throughout the book.
