Summary:   A FEW WEEKS AGO I POSTED A QUERY ASKING ABOUT EXAMPLES AND REFERENCES
CONCERNING PSEUDO-LOANWORDS. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE WHO REPLIED TO
THIS QUERY FOR THEIR GREAT EXAMPLES AND INSIGHTFUL COMMENTS. YOU HAVE ALL
HELPED ME A LOT, AND I HOPE THIS SUMMARY IS FUN TO READ FOR YOU TOO.

I DID NOT HAVE THE TIME FOR A REAL SYNTHESIS OF THE REPLIES, SO I HAVE
SIMPLY EDITED THEM MINIMALLY AND GROUPED THEM ACCORDING TO LANGUAGE (IN
ALPHABETICAL ORDER). ALL DEFINITONS AND DISCUSSIONS ARE THE RESPECTIVE
AUTHORS', WHICH ARE LISTED AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH LANGUAAGE. I HAVE THE
FEELING THAT SOME OF THE EXAMPLE ARE ACTUALLY 'TRUE LOANWORDS,' BUT I HAVE
NOT CHECKED THIS, AND I HAVE INCLUDED ALL EXAMPLES EXACTLY AS SUPPLIED TO
ME.

I HAVE OMMITTED GENERAL COMMENTS ABOUT PSEUDO-LOANWORDS HERE TO KEEP THE
SUMMARY SHORT. HOWEVER, ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED SHOULD SEND ME AN EMAIL
AND I WILL SEND THEM A DOCUMENT CONTAINING ALL REPLIES IN FULL.
