In Shadow of The Hegemon by Orson Scott Card (which I immediately picked up after having thoroughly enjoyed reading Ender's Game), a certain hierarchy of foreignness is established and used to classify how "alien" one individual is relative to another (more here). One of the levels of foreignness is "främling", a word used to describe "the stranger we recognize as human, but of another world."

I have a strong attachment to this word, for reasons that seem far too trite to further elaborate on.
