English loanwords in European languages

Thomas   Fri Mar 03, 2006 2:04 pm GMT
At the moment I am working on an assignment regarding English loanwords' (lexical borrowings) integration into European languages.

I would be very grateful if anyone send me websites or documents he/she may have regarding English loanwords in the Italian language or Turkish.

1) How are these being integrated in the Italian language?
2) Is there any orthographic rule about them?
3) Are they at a high rate?
4) Do they influence the Italian language?

Thanks in advance,

Dear Thomas

I am an MA Linguistics student at UCL in London and for my dissertation I am to write about the phonology of loanwords into Italian.
It appears you are already working on the topic of loanwords into Italian and I thought you may be of some help for my own work. Apart from that, I don't know if you have finished with your work yet, so you may need some help as well, and I will be overjoyed to give a hand, being a native speaker of Italian.

Hope this makes sense to you. I'll write my email address, so that you can contact me if you wish.

Wish you all the best,
