#756. 世界からの借用語 [loan_word][lexicology][pde_characteristic][world_languages]

 現代英語の最大の特徴の1つである cosmopolitan vocabulary については pde_characteristic を始めとする記事で,また時にそれを "asset" とみなす見方については批判的に[2009-09-27-1], [2010-05-22-1]の記事などで扱ってきた.関連して,現代英語語彙が借用語に満たされていることについては,[2010-05-16-1]にリンクを張った諸記事や loan_word の各記事で話題にしてきた.
 英語の語彙がいかに世界的かをざっと知るには,[2009-11-14-1]の記事「現代英語の借用語の起源と割合 (2)」のグラフをみるのが手っ取り早いが,単語とその借用元言語を具体的にリスト化しておけば,なお手っ取り早い.そこで,主として Crystal ( The English Language, p. 40 and Encyclopedia, pp. 126--27 ) に基づき,他の例も多少付け加えながら,借用元言語で世界一周ツアーしてみたい.
