Doug wrote in two questions about Esperanto.
In response to question 1 (regarding h^): I learned Esperanto from
two native Esperantists, and they taught us words with h^, and never
even mentioned anything about its being replaced by k. The only
word I really remember with it in it is h^oro (for "choir").
In response to question 2 (regarding loan words from Esperanto to
English): Sure, there's one:
Esperanto (n.) name of a language created by L.L. Zamenhof in 1877,
intended for international communication.
Perhaps "esperantist" is in there, too. ;)
