Verbs in the domain of transactions: a lexical and semantic study of borrowing and lending
2006 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay was to find out if there are any differences between the two verbs borrow and lend concerning meaning and usage. My research is based on the A file of the British National Corpus and I used a computer search program called MP2.2 to collect my data. The result revealed that borrow is used more frequently than lend but that lend is used more often in metaphorical expressions.
