Message 1: Query: What words are borrowed easily and why

Date: Thu, 17 Feb 1994 12:55:03 Query: What words are borrowed easily and why
From: Yusuf Pisan <yusufSPD-13.ils.nwu.edu>
Subject: Query: What words are borrowed easily and why


I am looking for some references about what kind of words are borrowed
in to the language (adjectives, nouns, verbs, ...) and references
about the claims people have made about word borrowing.
A particular claim I know is that nouns will be borrowed a lot more
than verbs since nouns are more concrete and isolated whereas verbs
are woven into the structure of the language.
I am especially interested in articles dealing with Turkish and
English, but articles describing how words are borrowed in a
specific language would also be interesting.

Have I made myself clear?

Thanks in advance for any responses

I'm not a linguist and I know very little about Latin but I teach Spanish and
I'm wondering (Re: "From: CONNOLLYMSUVX1.MEMST.EDU") if "_i_ as the imperative
of _ire_" didn't survive "in Romance" as _Id_, the second person plural
imperative in peninsular Spanish. If this is just folk etymology, please flame
me straight.

Gracias,

Bob

Message 3: corpus tagger

An appeal from the Macquarie Dictionary:

Does anyone know of a public domain corpus tagger that could be downloaded?

We would need a source code that can be compiled as a C program for the
Macintosh version of Unix (AUX 3.0).

Thank you!
