I'm new on this forum.
I'm analysing a corpus for college and I need to calculate how many borrowings there are in my corpus. I need to express it like this: "Number of borrowings per thousand words"
Please, could you tell me what this calculation is called? or maybe just tell me how I should calculate it?
My corpus has 7621 words and the total number of borrowings is 764...
I will really appreciate any contribution you couls make to help me understand this
Thanks in advance!
What exactly do you mean by borrowings? Loan words?
