English has thousands of words that came from other languages and are now part of our vocabulary. Some have become so familiar that we no longer think of them as foreign words, while others are less mainstream. In the case of the four words previously mentioned, I understood three of them. Schadenfreude and echt are listed in the Online Oxford Dictionary. Quixote is only listed there as the name of the character, but the more common word quixotic is listed as a word. Some other dictionaries list quixote as a word, though. The only word of the four that was new to me was jnana, which is not in the Online Oxford, but is listed in some others.
