If you look here, you'll find lists of words from many languages that have entered English: http://www.usingenglish.com/members/wordlists/
Now my English teacher let us to survey some thing.Some people who speaked English brought in some words from other countries.For example,the "typhoon" is from China; the"cent" in American money is from old French.
Dear everyone,if you know some examples about this,please write back to me soon. I'm in a hurry to find this....... Thank you very much!!!!!!
Thank you,tdol!!! I'll have a try!
The list is not complete. For example in turkish words some words missed:Originally Posted by tdol
bosh, , crimson,yataghan
In Farsi: chemistry (from kimiya: a substance that convert other elements into gold)
In Turki father is Ata or Dada and mother is ana or nana.
It looks that (dad and nanny) originated from these Turkish words.
