Some Thoughts re(2): supplement to the | Comment 4 of 5 |
(In reply to re: supplement to the by Steve Herman)

Not exactly, Steve.  Several chiefly "Scottish" words, such as "ae" are also considered words of the English language, and can be found in English dictionaries -- not designated as foreign words.
There are loanwords from Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish, et al., and are also considered English words, but those you have listed are not, in the context of the definition of "one", English.
There are several dialects of English: American English, British English, Scottish English, Australian English, Canadian English, Indian English, and a few others. There are even regional dialects, such as (US) Southwestern and Southern English and (UK) Northumbrian. 
Regional and dialectal English words are still of the English language.
