Abstract

Bearing in mind that regarding the lexis, the conversational style is characterized by frequent usage of Turkish loanwords that have appropriate Macedonian equivalents, as well as of loanwords from English language, the paper examines whether the students at the University „Sv. Kliment Ohridski“ – Bitola, who are in their first, second, third and fourth year in college (their age and status make them seem like a relatively homogenous group with same or similar language features) know the literal and the figurative meaning of these Turkish loanwords that have a Macedonian equivalent, the meaning that these loanwords have in students’ every day spoken practice and their possible replacement with words form the modern English language, which imposes itself as a global language. The results from the research show that a part of the Turkish loanwords that were subject to analysis, are still present in students’ vocabulary, some of them are substituted by native words and, though rare, some are substituted by English loanwords.
