take clock, slogan, manure

A well known example is the Gaelic for a bicycle (which I can't remember how to spell - but it has a few more letters for sure)
alcohol (from arabic, and possibly Akkadian before that)

pyjamas (from Hindustani)

bungalo (again from Hindustani)

caravan (from Arabic)


agenda (from Latin)

eaglais (Gaelic from Latin)

ecclesiastical (English from latin

kanninchen (German from Gaelic)

All languages evolve through cross fertilisation.
