Academic Paper


Title: 'Twentieth-century borrowings from French into English – an overview'
Author: JuliaSchultz
Linguistic Field: 'Historical Linguistics; Sociolinguistics'
Subject Language: 'English'
' French'
Abstract: French has long served as the donor language par excellence in the history of English. French has enriched the English vocabulary throughout the centuries since before the Norman Conquest (Serjeantson, 1935: 104–5). The French impact on the English lexicon has received much attention in studies of the language and its development. However, French borrowings which have recently been introduced into English have figured little if at all in research thus far.
