Question: Does the incorporation of foreign words enrich a language?
It does. In fact, it has always been a dynamic exchange. Portuguese has much influence from French, but has also influenced many other languages. New technology terms are created on a daily basis, and they are spread so fast around the globe that we don’t even have time to translate them. Information in general flow so fast that new words and idioms are incorporated to people’s vocabulary with the snap of a finger. We just have to be sensible and remember that there’s no reason to say “bowl” instead of “tijela”. We still have to value our own culture and language!
Now it’s your turn.
