Reverse Borrowings of English Corruptions of Spanish.
Adkins, Patricia G.
A brief glimpse of the on-going process of loanword borrowing in a bilingual culture is accompanied by frequent examples. The phenomenon described as "reverse borrowings of English corruptions" refers to linguistic occurrences in which the native speaker adapts a loanword which is, in fact, a corrupted version of his native language which he does not recognize.
