Summary/Abstract: The paper addresses the question of whether there exists some typical order by which the adaptation of loanwords’ pronunciation, morphology, and spelling proceeds in Polish and Czech. The approach used can be classified as empirical and quantitative. A sample of loanwords is divided into groups corresponding to different adaptation patterns. The numbers of loans assigned to particular patterns are analyzed subsequently in order to reveal a typical adaptation order these patterns might be a result of.
