"Underfed" is [Vnd@(R)fEd].

This sense of "pudding" is archaic, at least in my version of English. Ditto the use of "pudding" for "black pudding", and even "black pudding" is a little unusual. "Pudding" now primarily refers to a soft dessert.

"Kielbasa" is also a known word in English, though I do not know which Slavic lg. it comes from.

"Salami" is applied fairly specifically to Italian salamis (sg. "salami", pl. "salamis" in English) such as Genoa salami. Lots of these German terms are fairly well-known too. I ask my Ukrainian butcher for Weisswurst, and he gives me the right thing. -- There is / one art || John Cowan <jcowan@...> no more / no less || to do / all things || with art- / lessness \\ -- Piet Hein
