Abstract (Swedish)
Ett språk är i ständig förändring, nya verb och uttryck myntas hela tiden. Ett språk lånar även ord från andra språk, anledningarna kan vara olika. I denna uppsats undersöks fyra engelska ord (appeal, competitor, design, target) som numera även finns i italienarnas vokabulär. Frågan är: hur används dessa ord i italienskan? Undersökningen har gjorts via ett italienskt corpus och det framgår att dessa ord används med en mer snäv betydelse än i ursprungsspråket. Ordet "appeal" till exempel används i sammanhang då det talas om en produkts attraktionskraft men inte om en persons attraktionskraft.
Abstract
Language never stops changing, new verbs and words are established all the time. A language sometimes borrows words from other languages, the reasons for why can differ. This essay investigates four English words (appeal, competitor, design, target) that nowadays can be found in Italian. The question is: how are these words used in Italian? The words have been searched for in an Italian corpus and the findings are that the words have more specific meaning in Italian than in English. For instance, "appeal" is used when talking about the appeal of a product but not about the appeal of a person.
