Seen on Twitter: 20 Awesomely Untranslatable Words from Around the World
I love lists like this. Because I speak two other languages, and know smatterings of several more, there are lots of these rattling around in my head. Knowing that while two languages may both be aware of a concept but only one has a specific and particular word for it blows my mind. I think it’s utterly fascinating how languages evolve.
My favorite word from the list is “saudade.”
