English term or phrase: polish
Read the following text, then prepare a bilingual glossary including the underlined terms. Explain which of the processes (Borrowing, Calque, Equivalent and Periphrasis) put forward by Zurita in her article on anglicisms and their adaptation to the Spanish linguistic system did you apply when translating the terms?

Do you think the previous question is fine the way it is (as regards language, collocations, voc, grammar) or do you think it needs to be polished. suggestions welcome. thanks in advance.

Explanation:
Minimum polish: "did you apply" should be replaced by "you applied" and since it is not a question, you do not need the question mark.
