This question is not about speaking about a language within the context of another language. I should have used another example.

I specified journal to emphasis that the example would be written for personal use. The definition would act simple as a reminder to the writer. My primary question is how to properly introduce the definition.

comment Meaning of “shot” cloth
Mark, how likely is it that specificity was sacrificed to make the allusion? Is there a word in Russian with the same meaning as "shot" has here? Would this way of sowing have been common at that time?

comment Meaning of “shot” cloth
Thanks everybody! I'm still having trouble picturing a cloth that "giv[es] a contrasting effect when looked at from different angles" with the use of a "warp and weft of different colours." A blue warp and a white weft would produce an overall color of pale blue; I don't see how that would change from a different angle. I can see distance changing one's perception of the color, but not angle. Any examples?
