Abstracts

EN
The article describes a method to analyse contemporary Slovak vocabulary with regard to the origin of the words. By using statistical data from a representative corpus of modern written language and etymological information we arrive at reasonably confident estimation of the ratio of loanwords in common Slovak vocabulary and the provenance of lexical borrowings. We demonstrate some of the findings in tables and charts, providing information that is interesting to non-linguistically oriented members of Slovak population (who are sometimes vocal in expressing their attitudes to the perceived amount of loanwords in the Slovak language), but can be also inspiring for further research in philology or linguistics.
