Annotation:  The paper focuses on the research of analysis of borrowings from the English language that has developed in Quebec and Russian linguistics. The article presents additional parameters for the analysis of linguistic borrowings, which should be taken into account in the further development of classification signs of borrowing and then to develop a common typology of borrowing. Language borrowing is a multidimensional linguistic phenomenon, they are able to affect all aspects of the linguistic sign. The word intersects all language plans - phonetic, graphic, morphological and syntactic. All of them, along with sociolinguistic criteria - to which we assign the place of distribution and functioning of the borrowed language unit, the time of the spread and functioning of the borrowed language unit, the attitude of the speakers to the borrowings, the attitude of the language specialists to the borrowings - attention when developing a common typology of borrowing. Consequently, when constructing a general classification of English borrowings, it is necessary to take into account both linguistic factors proper and sociolinguistic ones. In the XIX century, in the Quebec version of French, borrowing from English is heterogeneous in nature: they consist of phenomena of different linguistic levels: borrowing lexical, grammatical cripples, the influence of English pronunciation skills on the sound of French. The article aims to analyze the process of conceptualizing borrowings from English in the XIX-XX centuries considered as the period when the scientific community demonstrated an active study of the phenomenon of borrowing. The material for the study includes the works by Russian and foreign linguists, Quebec dictionaries of the 19 th and 20 th centuries. The comparative-historical method and the method of analysis of dictionary definitions are leading for this analysis.
