The occurrence of anglicisms in the Czech and Slovak lexicons
Gabriela Entlova – Eva Mala
In the study, Anglicisms are presented by a brief analysis of their adaptation to the Czech and Slovak orthographic, phonological and morphological systems as well as their semantic peculiarities. The individual areas of interest in Anglicisms, including their linguistic background and basic information on taking over new lexical items are also reflected in the paper. The trend to adopt Anglicisms has been continuing up to the present day and concerns all areas of social life, mainly because English serves as a global lingua franca.
Key words: Anglicism, adaptation, linguistic levels, Czech, Slovak
