ABSTRACT
The study is an introduction to a more detailed analysis of the English loanwords found in Romanian economic blogs. As English represents the global language of a global expanding economy the acquisition of new lexical elements is a customary habit among professionals in the economic field. As the information on blogs is accessible to many people there is a current tendency of common speakers to borrow some of the specific elements of terminological areas in their vocabulary. The loanwords undergo the alterations specific to Romanian language in their form and content. The analysis uses a corpus of loanwords selected from economic blogs and deals with phonetic, morphological, semantic and stylistic aspects of those lexical borrowings.
