Welche Fremdwörter gibt es im heutigen Deutsch, wo kommen sie her und wie verhalten sie sich innerhalb des Gesamtwortschatzes unserer Sprache? Mit diesem Buch wird zum ersten Mal der Versuch unternommen, einen wichtigen, vielseitigen und seit Jahrhunderten wachsenden Teil des deutschen Wortschatzes systematisch und trotzdem verständlich zu beschreiben. Faktenkenntnis ist auch in öffentlichen Auseinandersetzungen über Fremdwörter der beste Ratgeber. Aus diesem Grund wendet sich das Buch an einen größeren Leserkreis. Was die Lektüre an Fachwissen verlangt, wird vollständig und leicht zugänglich mitgeliefert. Die dritte Auflage von Peter Eisenbergs erfolgreichem Werk Das Fremdwort im Deutschen enthält zahlreiche Ergänzungen und Aktualisierungen.

Aber das Interesse an Wörtern hat sich in den letzten Jahrzehnten durch neue Methoden, v.a. aus der Korpus- und Kognitionslinguistik, deutlich gewandelt: Die Wahrnehmung ‚des Worts‘ ist (wieder) in Bewegung geraten. Das Handbuch zeigt auf, wie Wörter durch ihre interaktionelle, visuelle und sprachliche Umgebung beeinflusst werden.
