The article traces the morphological adaptation of anglicism in two distantly related languages – Bulgarian and Rumanian, according to the various parts of speech. Nouns, which are most prominent among loanwords, are given greater attention. Special attention is given to the specific features and the common tendencies in the two languages with respect to gender assignment and the formation of plurals. The specific processes of borrowing English verbs and adjectives are also touched upon. The interdependence between morphological adaptation, on the one hand, and phonetic and orthographic adaptation, on the other, are also discussed.
