Posted by bababardwan August 10, 2010 in the Group General Discussion .

Recently on the boards there has been some discussion here:

about tranliterations and loan words from English. Also here:

there has been some discussion of acronyms from English creeping into Chinese.

In this post I'd be interested in discussing/making a list of any words,transliterations,or acronyms that have entered Chinese from a language other than English. Does anyone have any examples?
