1. the adoption by one language of a phrase or compound word whose components are literal translations of the components of a corresponding phrase or compound in a foreign language (also called: loan translation)
2. (trans.) to transfer (a design) by tracing it with a blunt point from one sheet backed with loosely fixed colouring matter onto another placed underneath (also called calk)


We could paint on the window
A calque taken from the ceiling
Coming out by night to lure tourists in
