Linguistic borrowing involving both linguistic and non-linguistic factors continues
to occupy a significant realm of linguistic research. As such, this paper focuses on the
use of English loanwords in French and Italian journalistic texts. Special attention has
been given to the choice of texts to be analysed as it is vital to obtain a high level of
equivalence between topics and genres. In order to encompass a diversity of topics,
the analysis includes those which discuss issues of global relevance, including the
economy, international and European politics, environment technology, etc. Following
an examination of the empirical data, this article contrasts the share of English
elements in both languages at the lexical level of linguistic analysis.
