I think Heath (1978) is a brilliant study of massive borrowing of grammatical morphemes. You may find relevant information in this book.

件名: [Lingtyp] morphological borrowings apart from lexical ones
Have you ever thought of morphological borrowings (especially of nominal plural suffixes) that happened independently of massive lexical borrowings from the source language?
I am thinking of a situation wherein a plural nominal suffix was admittedly borrowed from Akkadian into a variety of Aramaic (a sister language of Akkadian), while this variety of Aramaic does not have a sizeable amount of outspoken lexical Akkadisms.
Have you ever seen this kind of evidence in better understood and/or living languages?
