Abstract

This is a discussion of seven Slavic loanwords copied into English, three via French (mac├ędoine, bugger, cravat), three via German (vampire, masochism, dollar), and one directly from Slavic lands and languages (robot). The approach is primarily socio-linguistic, studying form and semantic content in cultural context with comments on affective features.
