Abstract:

This thesis titled “English-based loan words in Etuno Language” is a documentation and analysis of some English-based loan words in Etuno language. The study is propelled by the following observations: (a) that a large part of the vocabulary of the Etuno Language are loan words from other languages particularly the English Language and the Yoruba Language. (b) that these loan words are basically as a result of the need for new designations. (c) that these loan words have been nativized and are generally used by the Etuno speakers. The work is therefore aimed at finding out the extent to which the Etuno Language has borrowed from the English Language and analyzing how the loan words undergo such phonological changes in the course of nationalizing them. The source of data for the research is primary source which involves the researcher’s intuitive knowledge of the language and information elicited from word list. The researcher discovered that there are very many English loan words in the Etuno Language and that in the course of nationalizing these loan words, they (the loan words) experienced adjustments in line with the morph-phonemic rules of the Etuno Language.
