    Abstract

    The paper conducts a quantitative analysis into the phenomenon of English borrowing in Romanian, as reflected in one of the leading economic publications over a period of one year (Capital 2005). Starting from a definition of Anglicisms that is based mainly on formal criteria, borrowed words in the above newspaper are identified and classified according to frequency of occurrence, both in relative and in absolute terms. Thus, Anglicism types and tokens are quantified as regards the proportion they hold in the total number of words in the publication, and in terms of their repetition rate. Special attention is devoted to borrowed words in the lowest and highest frequency ranges, with some of the 100 most frequently used Anglicisms being discussed as regards their necessity in the language.
