Abstract: This thesis mainly focusses on the extent to which the modernist ideology of a monolingual Japan prevails and how this ideology is affected by an increasing inflow of English loanwords and English language use. In addition, a small survey on the use of loanwords in interviews with Japanese rock bands derived from SHOXX magazine will be included in order to investigate what kinds of loanwords are used in this Japanese rock subculture.
