Abstract: Domain-specific loans mirror historical and cultural changes in specific areas of life and allow to identify the language which at a certain point in time is considered most prestigious by the recipient language users. Foreign loans are always evidence of cultural contacts of the recipient language speech community with other communities, and reflect the sharing of social, economic, political and cultural phenomena among various nations. The article offers a historical overview of Polish domain-specific Anglicisms and presents and analyses over a thousand English loans of four different types in the areas of leisure, fashion and entertainment, which have been enriching Polish since the 17thcentury.
