Keywords: songs by Đorđe Balašević | popular music | language contact | lexical loan | Serbian language

The subject of this paper is an analysis of formational and semantic aspects and synchronized views of 1.200 lexical borrowings which frequently appear in the songs of a popular Serbian singer-song writer Đorđe Balašević. At first, an etymological and semantic clarification of the definition and the origin of the mentioned lexemes is performed, then follows their translation which is harmonized with contemporary Serbian language and thus not treated as a separate lexical stylistic unit. The linguistic explication of these concepts provides essential assistance to anyone who faces commensurate difficulties in understanding the incomparable inspiration of the talented artist that is the focus of this attempt.
