Abstract [en]

English has been utilized as a donor language for lexical borrowing of loanwords for a long time, by many different languages. One of those languages is Korean: and despite the importance of the English influence on the Korean language, few have researched what word class the loanwords within the language belong to and if the lexical borrowing goes through any changes. The purpose of the present study was to establish what type of lexical borrowings occur in Korean television programs and what processes the lexical borrowings go through before settling within the borrowing language and how these results would relate to studies in other languages. The results showed a strong tendency for English nouns to be borrowed regardless of the genres of the different programs analysed for this study. Loanwords was the most common borrowing type with 493 followed by loanshifts with 31. Loanblends were very uncommon with only 3 found, suggesting further research or a different approach. The results were also compatible with findings in other languages.
