I wonder which journal would be happy to have thematic issues on loan  
words across 41 languages. I, for my part, grossly appreciate  
coherent edited volumes on a well defined topic, which is  
particularly relevant for studies of comparable phenomena across a  
large number of languages – something that is undoubtedly important  
in typological research.
