Description
In this short but enthusiastic book, linguist Moore selects, from languages across the world, words and phrases that are impossible to translate neatly into English. In many cases the difficulty arises because our culture simply doesn't share the same experiences as others. Other untranslatable words are those used for a feeling or situation that English describes in a roundabout way. This book will appeal to anyone who loves linguistic oddities.
