See two articles I co-authored on early Dutch loanwords in Polynesian 
 languages:

 I am Zhongyi Eric Song, a postgraduate student of English dept of NTNU, 
 Taiwan. 
 I know there is an article dealing with the phnological adaptation of loan 
 words in recepient language.It's an article written by Larry Hyman in the 
 Studies in African Linguistics. 

6- Ben Karlin:
 Battison, Robbin. Lexical Borrowing in ASL (American Sign Language). 
 Haven't got the rest of the reference but I am sure you can find it. Talks 
 about the morphological processes of ordinary signs gradually subsuming 
 fingerspelling as English words become a part of ASL.

7- In response to your query on Linguist, I can recommend a nice little book 
by Marcel Danesi, entitled something like _Loanwords and phonological
 methodology_.
