Keywords: anglicisms; borrowing; lexeme; semantic loan translation; derivation


The article is devoted to the topical issue of adaptation of anglicisms into the French
language. English, being one of the most spoken languages in the world, affects other languages more
and more these days. English borrowings are used in almost all languages. A large number of anglicisms
penetrated French in different periods of history. This process continues in various social spheres,
including the field of new technologies.
