Definitions and Meaning of loanword in English

loanword noun

  1. a word borrowed from another language; e.g. `blitz' is a German word borrowed into modern English




A loanword is a word at least partly assimilated from one language into another language. This is in contrast to cognates, which are words in two or more languages that are similar because they share an etymological origin; and calques, which involve translation. Loanwords from languages with different scripts are usually transliterated, but they are not translated. Additionally, loanwords may be adapted to the phonology, phonotactics, orthography, and morphology of the target language. When a loanword is fully adapted to the rules of the target language, it is distinguished from native words of the target language only by its origin. However, often the adaptation is incomplete, so loanwords may conserve specific features distinguishing them from native words of the target language: loaned phonemes and sound combinations, partial or total conserving of the original spelling, foreign plural or case forms or indeclinability.

आगत शब्द (loanword) ऐसे शब्द होते हैं जो एक भाषा में उत्पन्न हुए हों लेकिन किसी अन्य भाषा में, बिना अनुवाद के, प्रयोग होते हों। उदाहरण के लिये, अंग्रेज़ी में एक पंच (punch) नामक पेय है, जो ब्रिटेन, ऑस्ट्रेलिया, कनाडा और संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका में पिया जाता है। इसका नाम हिन्दी के "पाँच" शब्द से उत्पन्न हुआ और अंग्रेज़ी में आगत शब्द है क्योंकि इसमें पारम्परिक रूप से पाँच चीज़े डाली जाती थी ।
