Hello there,

Yes we have plenty of them.
I'm sure you must have found this useful page as a starting point (for curious readers of this post)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Fr ... h_speakers

What is the point of your thesis other than to list all the borrowings?
Will you talk about how these borrowings came about
