Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1.0, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (Language, Literature and Culture), language: English, abstract: English is everywhere. Not only is it the language of science, the internet and advertisement,for instance, but it is the lingua franca that allows communication all over the world. Thanksto globalization, the increasing importance of the media, the changing lifestyles of theyounger generations as well as the coalescing Europe, we cannot evade its impact.
