The influence that Spanish has had on English has been the subject of a number of studies, but the converse, where English has had an influence on Spanish, has received a fairly less amount of attention. The Influence of Spanish on the English Language since 1801 (PDF) sheds light on the Spanish influence on the English vocabulary since 1801. It proposes the first systematic evaluation of the selection of phrases that have been taken over from Spanish and its nationwide varieties over the course of the previous couple of centuries. The findings of this study are based on an analysis of a comprehensive lexicographical pattern of 1 355 Spanish borrowings obtained from the online version of the Oxford English Dictionary. The temporal distribution of the numerous Spanish-derived phrases, as well as their stylistic perform, contextual usage, and sense development from their first attested use in English until right now, is the focus of linguistic interest in this article. Documentary evidence retrieved from a variety of English language corpora has been utilized to explain how the borrowings are currently being used in context.
