Italy's government may fine people for using English words in Italian. A spokesperson is worried that "Anglomania" will damage the Italian language. He wrote: "We continue our battle for the use of Italian instead of English." He wants people to be fined up to €100,000 for using English words.

The Internet and social media have spread English all around the world. People are worried this will harm their own language. An Italian language group disagreed with fines. Other people like them. Since 2000, the number of English words used in Italian has increased by 773 per cent. There are no signs this will stop.
