This article focuses on productivity and frequency of verbs of English origin recently lexicalized in Czech and French. We will particularly observe, for the latter language, the uses of Quebec and France. Based on three representative lexemes entered in the 2018 edition of the Petit Robert dictionary, counterparts of which were found in Czech, we will highlight the differences or similarities of use of these chosen English borrowings based on lexicographical data and tools of corpus linguistics.

Key words: anglicism, loanword, lexicalization, productivity, frequency
