English is the global language, which is the important source of Loanwords in the Chinese network language. This paper aims to explore the cultural characteristics through contrasting the loanwords from the perspective of buzzwords. Chinese loanwords in English manifest more traditional culture and achieve long continuity. However, English loanwords in Chinese represent abbreviations and keep in a short period.
