What are some English words that are actually Spanish words?
If they are Spanish they are still Spanish, but used as part of the English vocabulary. ----------- There are, however, an extensive number of words in English that come from the Spanish language. These words are usually called loanwords. In the same way that the French word 'fiancée' is now considered an English word, many words of Spanish origin have been assimilated into the English language. Words like adios, amigo, afficionado, albino, alpaca, armada, avocado, buckaroo, bravo, and burro are just a few of the former Spanish words that have made their way into the English language.

What words in spanish are foreign words?
There are many "Spanglish" words. One is jeans. I have also had several conversations with Spaniards who call each other pretty boy as an insult. There are also a lot of misappropriated words in Spanish from English in modern Spanish slang. A good example is "crack". If a Spanish person says "Has hecho un crack" it does not mean that you have broken something, but that you have discovered a clever solution to a problem. Spanish also absorbs words from the places that they conquered or had frequent dealings with. Words like "aguacate" (avocado) and "chocolate" come from the Nahuatl (Aztec) words "aguacatl" and "xocolatl". Words like "algodón" (cotton) and "aceite" (olive oil) come from the Arabic words "al-qoton" (القطن) and "az-zeitun" (الزيتون ).
