Latin loanwords of the early modern period: How often did French act as an intermediary?
This paper examines borrowing into English from Latin and from French during the early modern period (EModE), based on documentation from the third edition of the Oxford English Dictionary now in progress (OED3). It looks in particular at dual borrowings from Latin and French, and also at cases of semantic influence from French on words borrowed from Latin, in order to assess whether such words make any significant difference to the overall picture of borrowing in the period. It also looks, albeit very tentatively, at some of the possibilities for further use of the very detailed information which can be extracted from the etymologies in OED3.
