With thousands of foreign terms in use in our language, it might be asked, very slightly misquoting Rudyard Kipling, "What does he know of English who only English knows?" We are almost as likely to encounter the Latin respice finem or the French of LaFontaine reminding us in all things to consider the final outcome as the English consider the bottom line.
