This list of loan words for English speakers originates from Jukeboksi's semi-private study wiki at wiki.study and is included here under the clauses of CC BY-SA to benefit Wikibooks.

You may also wish to review words listed under French and Italian as the words in the wiki.study are classified under the language that the pronunciation best matches and therefore there are many words resembling the English word, but listed under French or Italian.

Hopefully in the future these lists could be made into a database with Wikidata, removing the scatter inflicted by the fact that these are lists and not database entries.
