The Law of Hobson-Jobson, named after the Hobson-Jobson historical dictionary authored by Henry Yule and Arthur C. Burnell in the late 19th century, is a linguistic phenomenon describing the phonological change by which loanwords from foreign languages become new words with the same meaning in their host language; examples of this include the Spanish “cucaracha” becoming “cockroach” in English and the English “riding coat” becoming “redingote” in French.
