Hi (possibly other) pseudonym. Are we trying to make a dictionary, or a place where errors of IRC kiddies may not be exposed? --80.114.178.7 21:21, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
German Gulasch will not be loaned as Dutch goulash, though it might be loaned as goelasj (or goelas, but I have almost never heard that). And it was loaned as "goelasj", but the spelling "goulash" won in the end, probably helped by the spelling in French and English. --80.114.178.7 21:21, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Relative commonness of the forms[edit]

FWIW, as of this writing, Google Books shows me 38 books that use goelasj as the Dutch word for this kind of soup (with some uses being in compounds) and 4 books that mention goelasj. More than 40 books use the phrase "Hongaarse goulash" in Dutch (and one book uses it in English). - -sche (discuss) 23:02, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
