This article evolved from a study on archaic vocabulary in Croatian, on how it is being depleted and gradually replaced by international loanwords often adopted from or via English, sometimes without being processed or adapted. Some English loanwords are used to represent various categories, their origin and common layman views are offered and corroborated by further examples disclosing certain stereotypes. Besides most common abbreviations, blends, slang and standard words, there are examples of semantic shift or rather a replacement of native words by foreign homonyms. The article simply describes the situation but eventually suggests that there are better solutions to enriching a language than to be careless about its changes and linguistically indifferent.
