The present study attempts to gauge the extent of lexical-copyrings from English into Punjabi, and the degree of phonetic and phonological assimilation of the copied items. It clarifies a number of terminological issues, including highlighting the fact that the traditional terms like loan-word, loan-transaltion, loan-blend and lexical-borrowing are out-and-out misnomers,a nd (as teh metaphore of copying is more appropriate thatn that of borrowing for representing these linguistic phenomena) they must be replced with the terms copied-word, copied-translation, copied-blend and lexical-copying repsectively.
