Words fill a strange void in us. What would have otherwise remained unsaid, rolls out of our tongue at a moment’s notice, letting us express ourselves to the best of our abilities. But do you sometimes feel like you can’t describe your feelings in English words? We do too. Hence, here are some words from different languages that have utterly beautiful meanings!
Meaning: You know that phase of an infatuation where you really really like someone, but aren’t in love with them yet? In Norway, the word used to describe that is Forelsket.
Meaning: Have you ever felt a deep sense of wanderlust? Have you ever missed a place you’ve never been to? That feeling is called Fernweh.
Meaning: This one is for them creative souls! When you do something you love, and leave a part of yourself in your work, in Greek the term for that is Meraki.
Meaning: In Phillippines, Gigil means to squeeze or pinch something which is downright adorable. Now, we all have experienced this, haven’t we?
Language: Mandarin, China
Meaning: This one is sure to connect with you and your besties! Laotong means a special friendship between two girls which is like that of kindred sisters.
Meaning: The word Shemomedjamo would ring true with all foodies. It means eating even after you feel full because the food is just so tasty.
Meaning: Don’t we all have that one friend who is always running late? Tidsoptimist is someone who is not quite great at managing time and always think they have more time than they actually do!
