From which language(s) does your language have the most loanwords?
In Greek most loanwords are from Italian and Turkish.

I remember reading it here
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inshallah#In_the_Iberian_Peninsula

Most words people commonly use have Germanic origin. Big words like anything with "-ation", medical terminology, scientific terminologies have Latin, Greek or French origin. When a 2 year old speaks English, 95% come from old English, when an average adult speaks English, 80% might come from old English and in a medical book, 50% of the words are west Germanic. Before 1066 when the English started taking up loanwords, there was influence from old Norse and Brittonic.

Arabic, French and Greek.

From english, we use words like week end, or parking for example.

No, none.

Latin, like every European language that isn't boor tier or plain edgy like Greek.

in the core: swedish, with a fuckload loaned

but since they've become so commonplace like hundreds of years ago we only know of the anglo terms as loan words anymore

>no, none

Did you know that English is literally a loan language?
"""English, like the other insular Germanic languages, Icelandic and Faroese, developed independently of the continental Germanic languages and their influences. English is thus not mutually intelligible with any continental Germanic language, differing in vocabulary, syntax, and phonology, although some, such as Dutch, do show strong affinities with English, especially with its earlier stages.[18]

Because English through its history has changed considerably in response to contact with other languages, particularly Old Norse and Norman French, some scholars have argued that English can be considered a mixed language or a creole – a theory called the Middle English creole hypothesis. Although the high degree of influence from these languages on the vocabulary and grammar of Modern English is widely acknowledged, most specialists in language contact do not consider English to be a true mixed language.[19][20]

In Turkish we have from Arabic and Persian. Thanks to Ataturk's reforms we also have from French

>>53486727
Pretty sure it's German. They tried to cull the germanisms in the last few centuries but there are still many present, especially in dialects.

>>53486727
in irish, latin (for church introduced words), norman french (administrative words mostly) and english (modern slang, frowned upon however)

lolwot?
just open any etymological dictionary or any dictionary for that matter or simply have some common sense
Babiniotis' etymological dictionary has loanwords in lists categorized by language of origin. Italian and Turkish are by far the biggest "lenders" with like 600 loanwords from each.
