I also wanted to note, somewhat peripherally, that the use of words like "el truk" in Spanish are préstamos--legitimate examples of words from one language (in this case English) being "borrowed" and incorporated into the other language--and in cases like this it's not necessarily that an equivalent word doesn't exist in the other language (and in the case of "el truk" it's certainly not the case--el camión), but sometimes simply that whatever the word was originally in the one language gets displaced by a word from another language (which happens for a variety of, often rather obvious, reasons--but that's another topic altogether!).
