English?is a language rich in foreign infusions. As a result, what is known today as English is far from the language of the Angles. From the time of Shakespeare down to the present day, the English language has always profited from foreign contacts that resulted in contributions from across the globe. This dictionary presents a selection of those foreign terms now used in English but that are neither on the one hand Anglicized nor on the other merely pedantic. Special categories given their own sections include Roman Beginnings, A Sanskrit Sampler, French Ballet Terminology, Italian Musical Terms, and Toasts.
