Mensagem:  The Japanese have an interesting word for it:  gairaigo (gai = foreign, rain = coming, go = language/word).  Their language has so few sounds that it is tricky to write most foreign words in "kana" (a form of writing that uses syllables, not letters).
beisu boru = baseball
bikingo = viking (a pirate DVD)
