Are the terms "gairaigo" and "loanword" synonymous within the scope of this website?
I've seen people use the term "gairaigo" within questions, answers, or comments; and I considered adding it as a tag but when I noticed we already had a "loanwords" tag I used that instead.
But I'm wondering if there's any possible overlap with subtle distinctions in which case there could be merit in having both. If not, when somebody first uses a "gairaigo" tag we can just make it a tag synonym for "loanwords".
What think ye?
