My name is Kendra Petrie and I am writing a senior research thesis
paper on the lexical borrowing between the spanish and quechua
languages. I need to know what stages a word goes through
before it is offically borrowed. I have searched many sites and none
of them can exactly give me step, like first, second, then...etc. I
think that you might be able to help me with this.

Thank you so much for your help.
