borrowed words

Just a question:
Well early LW (now called Archaic Meyadhew) I often borrowed words from my environment
just for their beautiful pronounciation or my relation of these words, but with
really different meaning.

There came into LW taqí, kalí, qulíwa, shar [originally scar], kowu, zingela, quala, taní etc.
If I don't count Egyptian stems of course :)

Anyone who like to do this?
