Loanword A loanword (also loan word or loan-word) is a word adopted from one language (the donor language) and incorporated into another language without translation.
Loanword According to the linguist Suzanne Kemmer, the expression "foreign word" can be defined as follows in English: "[W]hen most speakers do not know the word and if they hear it think it is from another language, the word can be called a foreign word. There are many foreign words and phrases used in English such as bon vivant (French), mutatis mutandis (Latin), and Schadenfreude (German)." This is however not how the term is (incorrectly) used in this illustration:
Loanword Examples of loanwords in the English language include "café" (from French "café", which literally means "coffee"), bazaar (from Persian "bāzār", which means "market"), and kindergarten (from German "Kindergarten", which literally means "children's garden").
Loanword In a bit of heterological irony, the word "calque" is a loanword from the French noun, derived from the verb "calquer" (to trace, to copy); the word "loanword" is a calque of the German word "Lehnwort"; and the phrase "loan translation" is a calque of the German "Lehnübersetzung".
Loanword Loans of multi-word phrases, such as the English use of the French term "déjà vu", are known as adoptions, adaptations, or lexical borrowings.
Loanword Strictly speaking, the term loanword conflicts with the ordinary meaning of loan in that something is taken from the donor language without it being something that is possible to return.
Loanword Weinreich (1953: 47ff.) differentiates between two mechanisms of lexical interference, namely those initiated by simple words and those initiated by compound words and phrases. Weinreich (1953: 47) defines "simple words" “from the point of view of the bilinguals who perform the transfer, rather than that of the descriptive linguist. Accordingly, the category ‘simple’ words also includes compounds that are transferred in unanalysed form”. After this general classification, Weinreich then resorts to Betz’s (1949) terminology.
Loanword Almost 350 years of Dutch presence in what is now Indonesia have left significant linguistic traces. Though very few Indonesians have a fluent knowledge of Dutch, the Indonesian language inherited many words from Dutch, both in words for everyday life and as well in scientific or technological terminology. One scholar argues that 20% of Indonesian words can be traced back to Dutch words.
Loanword In some cases, the original meaning shifts considerably through unexpected logical leaps. The English word "Viking" became Japanese バイキング "baikingu" meaning 'buffet', because Imperial Viking was the first restaurant in Japan to offer buffet-style meals.
Loanword Most of the technical vocabulary of classical music (such as concerto, allegro, tempo, aria, opera, and soprano) is borrowed from Italian, and that of ballet from French.
