In its endeavor to become a universal mode of communication, English started borrowing words from Arabic and oriental languages like Sanskrit and Mandarin. Semantic inadequacy is often cited as one of the chief incentives to the growth of loan word vocabulary. But in the process of borrowing, such words undergo changes in the pronunciation and other phonetic attributes. This article seeks to unravel the phonetic mutation undergone by Sanskrit and Hindi loan words in their English adaptations. The article deals majorly with consonant sounds which have undergone such changes.
