The user “長期陳最景” was the first to note this change and accurately point it out. Based on their research, they also noted that 85 percent of all words in the Oxford English Dictionary have been borrowed from other languages, and that more and more of those borrowings are from (non-European) Romance languages and from English. They also pointed out that the quantity and prestige of English loanwords have been rising since the 1980s. And they analyzed the evolution of English loanwords and compared them to Romance languages, concluding that English borrowed most of its words from dead languages of Western Europe, such as Latin and French; from languages that were strong in the 20th century, such as Spanish and Russian; and from languages that were objects of prestige in English-speaking countries in the 20th century, such as German and Romanian.

The results of Google’s Ngram Viewer correlate with those of HathiTrust’s Lookup tool. The large number of words searched for in Google Ngram Viewer for the years 1940 to 2006 can be clearly seen. While this tool has relatively small sample sizes, it shows a number of trends, such as a continual rise in the number of words borrowed from Romance languages. It also shows some differences in dictionaries: M-W’s “weighted frequency” of words, which is based on the number of usage records for each word (Schoenauer 2010), is much smaller than Merriam-Webster’s. This is probably because words that are used frequently in different works are viewed as “key” words and therefore assigned a higher weight in the calculation of the overall frequency of the language.
