There are so many situations, emotions, and ideas we have where words fail us. I love this list of 20 words that we can borrow from other languages to say what we need to express. I learned the English word from India, "prepone" a few years ago; it means to take care of things in advance - the opposite of postpone. The words listed here are from Spanish, Japanese, Czech, and Inuit as well as Portugese, Scottish, and many others. Here are a few of my favorite.
Inuit – “To go outside to check if anyone is coming.” (Altalang.com)
Scottish – The act of hestitating while introducing someone because you’ve forgotten their name. (Altalang.com)
