I love languages. And, I love words, especially new words that convey something previously undefined. That’s why I particularly enjoyed this Spanish-language article highlighting some unique words found only in their native languages.
- For example, what do you call the path created by moonlight on water? In Swedish, it’s mangata.
- What about the feeling of being alone in the forest? Waldeinsamkeit, in German.
- Or, the urge to look out the window to see if that person you’re expecting has arrived? The Inuit call it iktsuarpok.
