As someone with a strong interest in linguistics I really value laden dislike terms like "real" and "contaminated" when used in terms of specific languages or dialects.
Languages change, specially when there's an interface with another language. It doesn't make them contaminated, or less "real" . From a linguistic perspective, the entire concept of a "pure" language is fundamentally impossible anyhow.
The only languages that don't change are dead ones.
