Some words are impossible to translate. And every language has a few of these. “Gezellig" anyone? Ella Frances Sanders collected many of these and illustrated them beautifully. Tsundoku. A Japanese word that describes leaving a book unopened after buying it. Trepverter. A Yiddish word for a witty comeback you only think of only when it is too late to use it. Totally! I want that word! Or Fika of course.
