Cool, I always thought Filipino was just the technical English word for Tagalog, in the same way that Farsi is called Persian

Could loanword be accepted as well as derivative? Or is there a difference in that a loanword stays the same and a derivative changes it's form, hence 'based off?
Aug 26, 2018
Yes, Loanword is more just a word from another language
Apr 27, 2020
I don't think derivatives have to come from other languages. I also think 'calque' fits the clue.

This is the question I found awkwardly phrased. I couldn’t quite understand what you were getting at!

I love your world language general knowledge quizzes. But this one has two questions, which are a bit confusing: How is "Sahara" a physical feature ? And a derivative can commonly come from inside a language - I had "loanword" and "borrowing" as an answer and was surprised these weren't accepted. And for san/santo/sao you might also accept the answer "holy". Still great quizzes - looking forward to more :)

I think WolfCam was mainly pointing out that 'sahara' means 'desert', so in English we call it the 'Desert Desert'. Also, deserts are physical features because they are landforms.

I agree that 'physical feature' is confusing. 'Place' would be a better clue.

oof i tried derivation instead of derivative
Aug 28, 2021
Quebec's official language is French, but New Brunswick is officially bilingual English/French, so it sort of counts as an answer.

I don't get the Sahara question

The Quran question is duplicated on one of the other quizzes in this series.
Mar 17, 2022
Like others, I disagree with the answer to the second question. I tried loanword, borrowing, and calque, all of which are correct. A derivative is merely a word based on the root of another word - like goodness from good - and doesn't at all imply a borrowing.
