Borrowed Words Sophomore Introduction to Linguistics (B) Camille Chiang & Sally Wu 490200 & 490200505 Professor Agnes Yuan Linguistics Report :Borrowed Words May 13, 2003 2 Ι. Introduction: Borrowing is a method for a language to add new words from other languages into its system. That is, it ―takes over words from other languages.‖(George Yule, The study of language, page 65) In English, borrowing belongs to one of the processes of Derivational Morphology. Throughout the history of English, English has adopted a lot of borrowed words from many languages, including France, German, Dutch Arabic, Italian and etc. To study borrowed words further, we can divide this term ―borrowing‖ into two different types: Loan Translation and Transliteration. We can also call Loan Translation ―calque‖. It means ―there is a direct translation of the elements of a word into the borrowing language.‖ We can see the example of the word ―skyscraper‖ borrowed from French into English in Yule (page 65). The other term is Transliteration, which we can define as writing and translating words or letters using letters of a different alphabet or language. That is, translate the borrowed words from other languages according to the sounds we hear and then translate them in our language system. In this paper, our group focuses on the English borrowed words that we take into the Chinese language system. We not only collect the borrowed words through observation in daily life and questionnaire, but also study them morphologically and phonetically. Beside the two terms of borrowing, we find that some borrowed words are not completely labeled into the two terms. Then, we label them in other part of borrowed words and give new definition. Π.Design: We collect our data mostly through the c conversation we had with other people who we met or talked to, and some borrowed words were recorded through the conversation we heard from others. In addition to these two methods of collecting data, we also had several brainstorming to seek for some borrowed words we already knew. At last, we had a small questionnaire survey as follows given to our classmates so that we could have more ideas about this topic. 親愛的同學您好,這是英文系語言學概論其中一組報告組所作的一份問券,針對您對中文裡出現的英文Borrowed Words(外來語)做個資料蒐集與了解。依據您在生活中對Borrowed Word的了解,請您列出至少五個從英文傳到中文裡的 Borrowed Words,任何您認為是的字彙皆可。 3 您的系級: ________ 您的科系: ________ Thank you  Ⅲ.Findings / Results : A:Loan Translation (Food) 1. hotdog 熱狗 2. supermarket 超級市場 3. organic food 有機食品 4. milk tea 奶茶 5. afternoon tea 下午茶 (Living) 6. air-conditioner 空氣調節器;冷氣機 7. high-heel shoes 高跟鞋 8. motel (Acronym) 汽車旅館 9. wallpaper 壁紙 (Transportation) 10. traffic sign 交通號誌 11. crossroad 十字路口 (Education) 12. homework 回家作業 13. midterm 期中考 14. blackboard 黑板 (Entertainment) 15. variety show 綜藝節目 (Cosmetics) 16.

That is to say, we can translate the bigger words of this type according to the smaller units(morphemes ). ex:supermarket (超級市場), basketball (籃球), hotdog(熱夠), etc. (2)Transliteration :Borrowed words of this type are translated by only imitating the original sound or pronunciation of the word. That is to say, we can ’t tell what the word means by only looking at the word literally. ex :cola(可樂), e-mail(伊媚兒), bye-bye(掰掰), etc.-- Can we know what these words mean when we only look into their Chinese translations? Because ― 可樂‖= a kind of drink? ― 伊媚兒‖=electronic mail?Then why the translation has ― 媚‖ ― 掰掰‖=saying goodbye, instead of saying something nonsense since ― 掰‖ means saying something nonsense in Chinese ? *Possible Interpretation :When words are borrowed from English into Chinese, those words which can be analyzed and translated by smaller units (morphemes)are translated according to the meanings of those smaller morphemes. That is to say, those borrowed words are later classified as ―Loan translation‖ through the derivational proce ss of forming new borrowed words in Chinese. Then, the rest of those words which are inseparable or untranslatable by the smaller units (morphemes)are translated in the way of imitating their original pronunciation. 【Related to ―Morphology‖ 】 B:When the words are borrowed from English into Chinese, they become new words in Chinese. This process of increasing of new words in Chinese is not only involved in ―borrowing‖ but also some other derivational processes, such as ―acronym‖, ―compounding‖, ―extension‖ of word formulation rules, etc. We found that ―acronym‖ seemed to play a very important role in borrowed words, conversion (functional shift ), and we found a lot of borrowed words are actually ―loan translations‖ of those ―acronyms‖ no matter whether those wo rds are translated either by ―loan translation‖ or ―transliteration‖. We can see the examples as follows : (1)Acronym:Words that are formed when the initials used to abbreviate a longer term be pronounceable words in themselves. ex :BBS(Bulletin Board System )→電子佈告欄系統, Internet(International Network )→網際網路, CPU(Central Processing Unit)→中央處理器, WWW(World Wide Web)→世界寬網, Seed net()→種子網路, URL(User Resources Location )→使用者資料出處來源 , A.I(Artificial Intelligence)→(人工智慧), I.Q(Intelligence Quotient)→智慧商數, E.Q. (Emotion Quotient )→情緒商數, Jeep (General Purpose Vehicle)→吉普車, UFO 9 (Unidentified Flying Object )→幽浮, .laser → (light amplification through the stimulated emission of radiation)雷射, radar →(radio detecting and ranging) 雷達, etc. (2)Compounding:A joining of two separate words to produce a single form. ex :air-conditioner 空氣調節器, high-heel shoes 高跟鞋, call-in 扣應, etc. (3)Extension:A part of the morphemes that are ―affixes‖, inclusive of ―prefixes‖, infixes‖, and suffixes‖ will all be translated in certain ways. But for most of the cas es, extension happens to be ―suffixes‖. ex :-ism→主義 【Nazism, feminism, nationalism, capitalism, etc.】 (4)Conversion(Functional shift ):Words keep the same form, but have different grammatical function, such as ―Verb→noun‖. ex: Words like ―call-in‖, ―boycott‖, ―bye-bye‖ can be used as a verb and also a noun. (5)Blending:The combing of two separate words to produce a single new term...
