— Hey, Sam! How are your studies going?

— Hi, Jack. They are going well, thank you. I've just finished my essay on borrowings in the English language. 

— That's interesting. Are there a lot?

— Quite a lot, I would say. I have found out that about two thirds of the vocabulary are borrowed. 

— Mostly from French, I suppose? 

— You're right. During the Norman conquest a plethora of new words came to the English language. That's why there are different words for meat and animals that give it: pig and pork, cow and beef, deer and venison and so on.

— Hmm, I didn't know that. What about Latin? Are there any vocabulary from the Romans?

— Sure. The words 'democratic', 'camp' and 'school', for example. There are plenty of them, actually.

— What about other languages, Slavic or Asian, for example?

— There are some words from Russian: tsar, beef stroganoff, babushka. Although 'babushka' doesn't mean 'grandmother' as it does in Russia. It's a headscarf that Russian elderly women wear.

— That's funny!
