The aim of the article is to discuss the indeclinable English loan words that are used in contemporary Slovak in the singular and in their plural form, i.e. with the original –s ending. In the article three such nouns (show – shows, star – stars, and headline – headlines) are analysed. The author examines in what contexts and registers they frequently appear in. As it is, these words are often to be found in the media and the mass media (advertising, etc.) and in show business. They have already permeated from these registers into the colloquial language, as seen for example on internet discussion boards. Even though there are not so many words like these in Slovak, their frequency of use is rather high. The possibility of distinguish between the plural form and the singular form may help in cases where the grammatical number is vague, perhaps due to the lack of context.
