Linguistic borrowing involving both linguistic and non-linguistic factors continues to occupy a significant realm of linguistic research. As such, this paper focuses on the use of English loanwords in French and Italian journalistic texts. Special attention has been given to the choice of texts to be analysed as it is vital to obtain a high level of equivalence between topics and genres. In order to encompass a diversity of topics, the analysis includes those which discuss issues of global relevance, including the economy, international and European politics, environment technology, etc. Following an examination of the empirical data, this article contrasts the share of English elements in both languages at the lexical level of linguistic analysis.
