I just received a copy of _Nye Ord_ (Copenhagen: Gyldendal, 1999) by
Pia Jarvad. Quite interesting even with a handicap of not
understanding much Danish. There are a lot of words from English.
Some cite information from American Speech. Some of those from
English, but not most by a long shot, are loan translations. Most are
borrowings with orthographic adjustments. A reverse list is gathered
in the back. This alphabetizes from the back of the word to the front
grouped by year of first evidence.
She has done a nice job.
