English and Romanian Words of Ukrainian Origin in Tourism Promotion

Iasmina Iosim, Dora-Manuela Orboi, Gabriela Popescu

Abstract


The scope of the contribution is to raise intercultural awareness and understanding in the context of globalisation. Readers will come across words familiar to them, which they have never thought of as belonging to the Ukrainian vocabulary. These are English / Romanian words of Ukrainian origin, i.e. words in the English / Romanian language that have been borrowed from the Ukrainian language at some point in time and under different circumstances. The authors have identified a corpus of 42 such Ukrainian borrowings (most of which are used in tourism mass media) based on English / Romanian language dictionaries and Internet sources, and analysed them from a linguistic perspective in an attempt to explain how and why they have entered the English / Romanian language. Research results show that Ukrainian borrowings are circumscribed to such fields as cuisine, ethnicity, geography, history, music, or politics. Some of them have entered English / Romanian directly, some others via other languages; other borrowings have originated in other languages, but they refer to Ukrainian realities (past and present); finally, some Ukrainian borrowings are used by Ukrainian diaspora in an English / Romanian-speaking environment.
