Based on the case studies in this volume, we identify three central themes that reflect the interaction between borrowing and word formation. One is neoclassical word formation. Based on the reanalysis of borrowed words, a new system may emerge, but whether it actually does, depends on the language. A second is internationalisms. Their reanalysis may lead to new word formation rules which show a strong cross-linguistic resemblance. A third theme is anglicisms. Most contemporary borrowings in languages other than English are from English. In some languages, the resistance to anglicisms has led to an increased use of word formation rules to replace them. Two other topics addressed in several of the case studies are the interaction of analogy with compound formation and the need to adapt borrowings to the morphology of the borrowing language by means of word markers.

Keywords:   neoclassical word formation, internationalisms, anglicisms, analogy, word markers
