    Considering the forum, I think that arabic words & general bellydance terms should be allowed. I'm guessing that names are disallowed from the above comment?

    It may be a task to come up with pure English words because so many of them have been adopted from other languages, but here goes.

    The English Language is a language made up of many foreign languages, and continues to evolve all the time, so what exactly is the English language.

    And Khanjar is a knife in arabic and Indian, and features as a recognised word at Dictionary .com

    But for a website such as this, where West meets East, crosses over and back again, in word games, expect words from languages most of us here are familiar with.

    But,

    Oolite ( a stone described as egg stone in geology) and that word comes from both the French language and the German language before it was adopted into English
