@Wikitiki89, Angr: Is there a better way I should be wording etymologies like this one? There are more examples, although גרייפּפֿרוכט(greypfrukht) is the only one that comes to mind right now. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:32, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

The technical term for this sort of thing is "partial calque". I'll edit it using {{calque}}. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 06:01, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
What makes the calque only partial? The אינטער־(inter-) prefix exists in Yiddish just as much as it does in English. --WikiTiki89 18:18, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
In that case maybe it's a full calque. But גרייפּפֿרוכט(greypfrukht) is still a partial calque, unless Yiddish has a word גרייפּ(greyp). —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 20:05, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
Yeah I guess. --WikiTiki89 20:42, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
