"My Madam Is Fine": The Adaptation of English Loans in Chichewa.
Simango, Silvester Ron
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v21 n6 p487-507 2000
Presents evidence from English loans in Chichewa (Bantu), which shows that the recipient language is not a passive participant in the borrowing process: the borrowing language makes various modifications to the loan words to make them fit in the grammatical structure as well as cultural requirements of the recipient language.
