Abstract

This article analyses the phonological characteristics of Shona musical terms borrowed from English. It discusses the phonological processes that take place when words are borrowed directly or indirectly from English. Essentially, the article analyses the adoption and adaptation of Shona loan-words at phonological level. It draws examples from the dictionary of Shona musical terms (2005). This exploration of loan-word adaptation enhances the understanding of the phonological changes that the musical terms undergo during the borrowing process.


Hierdie artikel ontleed die fonologiese kenmerke van Sjonamusiekterme wat aan Engels ontleen is. Dit bespreek die fonologiese prosesse wat plaasvind wanneer woorde direk en indirek aan Engels ontleen word. Die artikel ontleed hoofsaaklik die oorname en aanpassing van Sjonaleenwoorde op fonologiese vlak. Dit neem voorbeelde uit die woordeboek van Sjonamusiekterme (2005). Die ondersoek na leenwoordaanpassing dra by tot die ver-staan van die fonologiese veranderinge wat die musiekterme tydens die ontleningsproses ondergaan.
