Category:Borrowed terms by language[edit]

Isn't this redundant to Category:Terms derived from other languages? —CodeCat 17:15, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

No. English has lots of terms derived from Old English, but very few terms borrowed from it (witenagemot springs to mind). The problem is that we don't use {{borrowing}} nearly enough. —Angr 17:24, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Keep, as no deletion rationale is given. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:35, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm with Angr on this, we need to replace instances of Borrowed from {{etyl|foo|bar}} with {{borrowing|foo|lang=bar}} which adds the extra category [[Category:bar borrowed terms]]. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:33, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
