| Definition -
A loanword that has evolved past the Gaswort stage and has been strongly assimilated into the language, such that it has a stable spelling and anglicized pronunciation.
For example, the word hotel was initially pronounced with a silent h but now is always pronounced with the anglicized aspirated h.
1. It is the second step in a three-step loanword assimilation process; the other stages are designated by the terms Gaswort and Lenvort.
Etymology - The term means "foreign word" in German.
