Yes that's right. I guessed on "idiot" and I suppose that both of these words comes from latin.

Taxi is an english word that is used by other languages for convenience (makes it much easier at airports and train stations to get around). The letter 'x' is a giveaway -it is not a normal letter in these other languages.

There are lots of foreign words adopted into other languages without change. In english, any word that ends in 'et' such as 'ballet' is really a french word that was adopted by english when no english word was already inplace.
