blog home

Because Sanskrit is such an old language, Sanskrit words have entered the English language in a variety of ways. Some are direct loanwords, while others have travelled across the world, evolving as they move from language to language, before finally being adopted into English.

This week we’re going to take a look at ten more words – scroll down to find out more!

You can find a spelling list featuring these words here.
