English German borrowing
« on: August 03, 2016, 05:58:28 AM »
Hello dear everybody,

I am writing a research paper on borrowed words, however I have difficulties in finding a thesis since this is my first linguistic research paper. I want to research English borrowings in German. Does anyone have experience and can help me out?

Take a look at this:

There are many other places to start, of course, but that's one option.

If you want to do some research on your own, you might want to look into using a corpus to find the frequency or usage of certain words. Or you could look through a dictionary to find which words are borrowed from English, but I'm not sure how effective/efficient that would be.
