Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book Dictionary of Arabic and allied loanwords contains a list of other foreign words. Languages with a script of their own are given in their most habitual system of Lt. transcription. The alphabetical order is also the standard Lt. one, disregarding diacritical marks, and not using capitals unless required by the spelling rules of each language. Words preceded by the asterisk are unattested, preceded by two, attested but unrelated to the etymon under discussion, and with three, unattested and unrelated, presumably non-existent.
