The article discusses the relationship between prototype and correlative borrowing in the aspect of contact linguistics. The process of assimilation of foreign lexis implies its adaptation at various levels of the receiving language, including the lexical one. Semantic assimilation of a foreign lexeme is the central point in its development. Adaptation at the level of semantics is a process that involves inclusion of a foreign word in the lexical system of the receiving language and leads to a change in the volume of semantic values of the original lexical item. In this paper, the authors have developed and described the types of semantic modifications of borrowings in diachrony, which has recently become most relevant in light of language contacts intensification. The mechanisms of semantic transformations of foreign words, which ultimately supplement various lexical and thematic groups of the Russian language, are also revealed. Different types of changes at the level of semantics are connected with differences in quantitative and qualitative character, which is expressed in the tendency to change the original semantic structure of the word.
