Polnische Lehnwörter im Englischen

2021-08-25T11:19:44+01:00

Welches ist Ihr Lieblingsland? In Europa ist eines der Länder, die ich am meisten mag, Polen. Ich war noch nicht sehr oft in Polen, aber wenn ich dort war, hat es mir immer gefallen. Polen ist ein wunderschönes Land mit ausgezeichnetem Essen. Zudem hat es dem Englischen einige Wörter geschenkt. Diese geliehenen Wörter nennen wir loanwords (Lehnwörter), welche eine gute Möglichkeit sind, eine Sprache zu lernen. Es gibt eine ganze Reihe von polnischen Lehnwörtern im Englischen, von denen mich einige überraschten, da ich keine Ahnung hatte, dass diese gebräuchlichen Wörter aus dem Polnischen stammen! Wenn Sie Ihr Englisch (oder vielleicht [...]

Persian Loan Words in English

2020-06-11T15:59:43+01:00

English is such a wonderful mix of all different languages.  Many words in English come from different languages, and we call these words loan words. One language we get many loan words from is Persian. Persian and English are actually related languages, since they're both part of the Indo-European language family. So it's no surprise that we share lots of words. Additionally (also), we're so excited to now be offering Persian lessons with Bespeaking! Because we're so happy to be offering Persian lessons, we've decided to take a look at Persian loan words in English. There are so many great Persian loan words, some of [...]

Chinese Loan Words in English

2020-04-09T11:21:15+01:00

We love talking about loan words in English. The history of where English gets many of its words is just so fascinating (very interesting)! We get so many words from other languages, but one often overlooked (not seen, not thought about, forgotten about) group are Chinese loan words. Chinese loan words in English are particularly interesting because many of them are literal (direct) translations from Chinese. Some of these Chinese loan words (or phrases, in some cases) are words or phrases we use every day and may never have imagined that they come from another language. If you're curious (want to know more) about Chinese loan words in English, keep [...]

Arabic Loan Words in English

2020-01-23T14:14:20+01:00

One of my favorite things about English is how it's a wonderful hodge-podge (a big mix) of many different languages. The words we use every day have all different origins: some from Latin, some from Yiddish, some from French, and some from Spanish. One language that may not come to mind immediately when thinking about the origins of English words is Arabic, but many of our most common words come from this language. With this in mind, we decided to look at Arabic loan words in English.   If you're as interested in loan words as we are, check out [...]

Aloof Aloof comes to English from the Middle Dutch word lof, which means a windward direction. Nowadays, we use the word aloof to talk about someone who is cold or distant and may not seem very friendly. [...]

Japanese Loan Words in English

2019-08-22T09:22:46+01:00

Japan is one of those countries that always seems so far away. Travelling to Japan has been on my bucket list (something you want to do) for years, and I really hope I make it there one day. Luckily for us though, there are many Japanese loan words in English that help Japan feel just a little closer. One of my favorite things in English is how many words we have borrowed from other languages- German, French, Yiddish, Spanish, Latin and Scandinavian. They help make English unique, and may even inspire you to learn a new language! If you're looking for some motivation, or just curious to learn some [...]

Portuguese Loan Words The history of Portuguese and English is long and storied. Many of the Portuguese loan words we have in English today are from the Age of Discovery, when Portuguese explorers (people who travelled the world to “discover” new land) were coming to the New World and interacting (talking) with sailors from all over the world.

Russian Loan Words: 9 Words We Get from Russian

2019-06-17T13:09:54+01:00

9 Russian Loan Words When I was a little kid, the animated (cartoon) movie version of Anastasia came out in theaters and it quickly became one of my favorite movies. (To this day, I can still sing along to (sing with) all of the songs.) Ever since Anastasia came out, St. Petersburg, Russia has been (Present perfect tense!) on my bucket list of places to go.

English Words Used in German – Eingedeutscht!

2019-06-17T13:19:17+01:00

English Words in German - Eingedeutscht! One of the wonderful things about language, in my opinion, is how flexible it is. Languages borrow words from other languages all the time, making the way we speak and write a beautiful hodge-podge (mixture) of different slang, verbs, and nouns. While English definitely borrows (takes, uses) some words from German, there are quite a few English words used in German, too. A lot of them keep the same meaning, like when my friends ask me if I'll joinen (join) them for something, but sometimes the meaning changes somewhat. Naturally, the Germans have a word for this phenomenon, too: eingedeutscht. Here [...]

Was genau ist ein loanword (Lehnwort, Fremdwort)? Wir haben schon viel über ausländische loanwords geschrieben, aber wissen Sie, was sie tatsächlich sind? Wie immer ist Bespeaking hier, um dies zu erläutern! Lesen Sie weiter, um herauszufinden, was genau ausländische loanwords auf Englisch sind und wie Sie sie in Ihrem Alltag verwenden können.
