  1. Reborrowing

    Reborrowing is the process where a word travels from one language to another and then back to the originating language in a different form or with a different meaning. This is indicated by A→B→A, where A is the originating language. In some cases the borrowing process can be more complicated and the words might move through different languages before coming back to the originating language. The single move from one language to the other is called "loan". Reborrowing is the result of more than one loan, when the final recipient language is the same as the originating one.
