In this paper I will reflect on the influence English language has had on the Japanese language ever since it came into contact with it through the explanation of certain linguistic changes that occurred over time as the language found its way into the Japanese culture. I will also discuss its use and misuse in mass media and explain what the term Engrish encompasses, as well as introduce new terms related to Engrish and clarify some of the most common mistakes and prejudices people tend to have when it comes to Japanese English. The main idea of this paper is to shed light on the attitude that Japanese people tend to have towards English and the way English is incorporated to fit into their native language
