  1. hi. i’m doing my thesis on linguistic. my focus is english football terms (words and phrases) that used media in Indonesia. sample data is turnamen segitiga ini tidak menggunakan aturan laws of the game. so, law of the game is the only english word here. my formulate questions are why they have been borrowed and do their meaning change?
    my questions is how do those are classified? and could you give me bit explanation on my formulation question. i look forward to hear your answer.
    thankyou.
