Calque of undetermined [Term?]


This template indicates that a term originated as a calque (also called a loan translation) of a term in another language. It uses Module:etymology/templates. Use {{semantic loan}} if the word already existed in the borrowing language, and simply had a new meaning added to it.

Example:

{{calque|fr|en|light year}} or the abbreviation {{cal|fr|en|light year}}

evaluates to

Calque of English light year
