English words borrowed from Japan...
 
Have any English words been borrowed from Japan with the past 3-4 years?

Thank you in advance!

Does "hentai" count?

3-4 years it's really a short time.

Anyway according to what I could find from the oxford english dictionary:

Sunomono
Yokan
Mecha

The latter, just like the word "anime", has its root is in English but then it got transformed in the Japanese Language and then went back to English

I couldn't check earlier than 2016, because the links are broken apparently.


It should be noted that there are a lot more words of Japanese origin that English-speaking people use especially in the anime\manga subculture, but they aren't really considered part of the English vocabulary until they get spread enough.

Things like Yandere or Chuunibyou, aren't officially recognized, for instance.

Apparently that one has been included more than 7 years ago link
