In post your will know about these : List of English words of Sanskrit origin, List of English words derived from Sanskrit, List of English words taken from Sanskrit, List of English corrupted words taken from Sanskrit, etc.
List of English words of Sanskrit origin (Part 7 of Part 7) are as given below:
Oval / Egg : Many of us may know that the whole earth or universe is oval / egg shaped.
This explanation was given by Europeans some approximately 2000 years back.
But we Indians know it since ages. Our universe is called ‘brahmAnDa‘ (read as brahmaanDa) in Sanskrit.
Here brahmAnDa means ‘the universe which is oval / egg shaped’. brahmAnDa = brahma + anDa.
Brahma means universe and ‘anDa’ means oval / egg shaped. NOW WE KNOW THAT REALITY.
Massage = In Sanskrit massage is called as ‘mardanam karoti’.
President : In Sanskrit president means ‘pradhAnam / pradhAna’. Another mispronounced word from Sanskrit.
Malign : In Sanskrit malign means ‘mAlinya‘. Another directly copied word from the great Sanskrit language.
Technology : In Sanskrit technology means ‘tantragnana‘. Another mispronounced word from the Sanskrit language.
Ardent : In Sanskrit, ardent means ‘adayam / adaya / aday’. Another tongue twister word from our great Sanskrit language.
Bear / Birth : In Sanskrit bear / birth means ‘bibharte / bhri’. Very clearly the English words are corrupted versions of the Sanskrit words.
Sucrose : In Sanskrit sucrose or sugar means ‘sharkara / sakkara’ means sucrose or sugar. Another copied word.
Tension = In Sanskrit tension means ‘tandava‘ (ताण्डव).
Hole : In many Indian languages we use the word called ‘honDa / honD (होण्ड)’ to describe the water which is stored in a big hole, especially near temples.
This shows the English word hole is mispronounced word from the Sanskrit language word honda (होण्ड).
Theist : In Sanskrit theist means ‘Astika / Astik’ (आस्तिक) (read as aastika / aastik). Very clearly the English word is a mispronounced form of the original Sanskrit word. Astika = As + Tika = Tika = Theist.
Atheist : In Sanskrit atheist means ‘ ‘nAstika / nAstik’ (नास्तिक). Again clearly the English word is just a mispronounced word from the original Sanskrit word. naastika = naas + tika = A + tika = A + theist = Atheist.
Needy : In Sanskrit needy means ‘nirdhana / nirdhan’. Another copied word from our great Sanskrit language.
Hut : In Sanskrit hut means ‘kuTira‘. Also in Kannada, hut means ‘huTTi’. Clearly taken from Sanskrit language.
Same : In Sanskrit, same means ‘sAmya‘ (read as saamya). A copied word from the Sanskrit word sAmya.
Lost : In Sanskrit lost means ‘lUpta‘ (read as luupta / loopta). Another copied / mispronounced word.
Soft : In Sanskrit soft means ‘soumya‘. The English word is the short form of the great Sanskrit language word.
Pale : In Sanskrit pale means ‘pelava / pelav’. Another short form of the great Sanskrit word.
Save : In Sanskrit save means ‘shekaraNa / shekaraN’ (read as shekaranha / shekaranh). Short form word from the Sanskrit word.
Arrogant : In Sanskrit, arrogant means ‘Agraham / Agraha’ (read as aagraham / aagraha). Another mispronounced word.
Stamp : In means stamp means ‘chApam / chApa / chAp’. chaap = stamp. Only difference is the pronunciation problem by the Europeans.
Cushion : In Sanskrit cushion has the word ‘kusha‘. Another directly copied word from the great Sanskrit language.
Tryptophan : This means a chemical when consumed makes our body satisfied.
In Sanskrit, satisfaction means ‘trupti‘ (tripti). Very clearly the chemical word is taken from the great Sanskrit word trupti (tripti).
Surrogate : In Sanskrit surrogate means ‘sankarshanam‘. Many of us know, the devata / demigod Sri Balarama was born in the surrogacy way.
That is, he was transferred from Mata Devaki to Mata Rohini. For this reason, Lord Sri Balarama is also called as Lord Sri Sankarshana. That’s the secret of this word.
Tornado : When Lord Sri Krishna was still a baby, a demon named ‘trinavarta‘ / ‘truNAvarta‘ (read as trunhaavarta) tries to attack and kill Lord Sri Krishna.
This demon comes in the form of a tornado. Very clearly the English word is taken from the great Sanskrit word ‘trinavarta’ / ‘truNAvarta’.
Piece : This is directly taken from our Sanskrit word called ‘puDi‘ (read as pudi / puDi).
Pant : The English words Pant is directly taken from the Sanskrit word ‘prothati‘ (प्रोथति).
Shirt : This word is directly taken from the word ‘Sharayee / Sharaai / Sharai’, which has same meaning that of the shirt.
Neighbour / Neighbor : This is copied from the Sanskrit word ‘nahuSa‘ (नाहुष) (read as naahusha).
Also in many Indian languages the word like Nereyavaru (in Kannada) means neighbour. No doubt that his word is taken from Sanskrit.

Very clearly the English word is nothing but a mispronounced word from our great Sanskrit language.
Devotional : Many of us know the meaning of this word is something which is related to God.
In Sanskrit, deva / dev means God or Demigods. Thus the English word is nothing but an interpreted word from the great Sanskrit language.
Part : In Sanskrit there a word called ‘pATa‘ (read as paaTa), which means a part or a piece of some big thing. It may be a cloth for an example. Again another copied word.
Irritate : In many Indian languages we have word call ‘kirikiri‘ which means to irritate.
Cousin : Many of us know that in Mahabharatha ‘kauravas‘ were cousins of ‘pandavas’. It can be clearly interpreted that the English word cousin has been taken from the great Sanskrit word Kaurava / kavrav.
Pollution : In Sanskrit we have a very beautiful word ‘pradushanam‘ which means pollution. Another copied word.

This is the one of the unlimited names of Lord Sri Vishnu. The meaning of the Sanskrit word is “someone who never ever can have any type deformity”.
Here the prefix is nothing ‘nir’ is the origin of the English word ‘never’.
Lazy : English word is directly taken from the Sanskrit word ‘aalasya‘.
The English word has become a very short word compared to the Sanskrit word as usual. The Europeans always want to make things small. We have seen this several times earlier.
Shut-up = This also taken directly from the Sanskrit word ‘shaantam‘, but a little bit mispronounced.
Teacher : English word ‘teacher’ is a mispronounced word from the Sanskrit word “aacharya“.
We need to give concentration on the second half of the Sanskrit word, that aacharya = aa + charya. Here the charya has become teacher.
Ignatius : Ignatius is a male name of presumed Latin or Etruscan origin, believed to mean “fiery one” (compare the word “ignite”).
Here the point to be noted is that the name “Ignatius” means something which is related to fire.
