I don't mean loan words that we use in English, but English words that sound like they might be French, German, Russian, etc.

Explain to me what you mean by "loan words"?

Most of the English language is made up of words with origins from other languages. When it comes to language bastardization, you really do have to hand it to English. So I'm having a hard time thinking of words that actually are English that weren't just the English spelling of words from other languages.
