Japanese term or phrase: 定着しきってはいない
From the phrase:
このように外来語として定着しきってはいないが、社会的に通用している言葉は、ただ忌避(嫌って避ける)しているだけでは、生きる力として生かすことができない。
I'm lost with the first section (up to the ga) on this sentence, and how it relates to the rest of it. Any help?

shikiru means to do something completely.
This seems to be the topic of the sentence: Words commonly used in society but not fully established as loanwords...
