Loanwords in English
« on: December 29, 2017, 11:58:49 AM »
Hello everyone! I'm new here and I'm looking for native English speakers because I have no more ideas in my head :( I have to create a list of loanwords in non-standard English. So far I've came up with words like Casanova, Macho, schadenfreude and bon vivant but I'm not even sure if they are non-standard.. I need 6 more! Thank you for any help and respond!! :)

Sounds like a homework assignment to me, and we don't answer homework questions here.

But some advice: this seems like a question you could literally answer by watching TV. And that would be real data.
