The recent enhancement of the morphological analyser for Latin Lemlat with a large Onomasticon enables us to analyse both the morphology and the distribution of loanwords in the Latin lexicon. In this paper, first we describe the categories of proper names that were not possible to insert into Lemlat automatically, showing that a large part of them are loanwords. Then, we present the results of a qualitative analysis of loanwords to detect those ‘exceptional’ endings that identify loanwords featuring inectional properties not assimilated to those regular in the morphological system of Latin. In the end, we report a quantitative analysis of data to study the frequency of such loanwords in Latin texts.
