Once in every while, don’t we all come across that situation where we want to express something but don’t have the exact word which describes it.. Frustrating it can be.
Below are a set of words, which i think are very cool, and we should all use. Only sometimes. Unless you derive pleasure in weirding out people. Which is crazy fun. sometimes. But weird.
Saudade: The nostalgic longing to be near again to someone or something that is distant or that has been loved and then lost. It also means the longing for un-lived possibilities. You can only choose one way, and then the others are not experienced. Existential crisis, anyone?
Nazlanmak: Pretending reluctance or ignorance when you are actually willing or eager, saying no and meaning yes.Teenage girls – everyone, except that psycho. #sexist. #sorry.
Myotahapea: The feeling of shame you experience on the behalf of another person or a character when they do something stupid or embarrassing. Yes, break up with that person if it happens once too often. Or pretend not to hear at all.
Hiraeth: A homesickness for a home to which you cannot return. A home that never was. The nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for the lost places of your past. If you have a hiraeth moment once, its ok. But if you have a hiraeth moment everyday, see a doctor.
Tacenda: Things that better be left unsaid. Matters to be passed over in silence. Break that awkward moment by just shouting TACENDA-TACENDA in between the conversation. Should be fun.
Bakku-Shan: A beautiful girl, as long as shes being viewed from behind but not from front.. Doesn’t get more sophisticated for a dickish situation. And if you use this enough, u’ll be branded a dick.
Clinomania: Excessive desire to stay in bed.
Alexithymia: An inability to describe emotions in a verbal manner. So sweet.
Braggadocio: More than just standard bragging. Braggadocio is pretentious bragging.
Misanthrope: A person who hates persons. Just Weird. For instance, that old guy who sits on his porch pointing his gun at random passersbys whilst cursing humanity.
Selfieish: A person who takes selfies, but doesn’t include others.You never let others in your picture … you’re so selfieish.
Backpfeifengesicht: A face badly in need of a fist. Like that friend who keeps telling rascist jokes in front of your mixed race friend. Everyone knows that one person. If you dont, it might be you.
Nunchi: Art of becoming a backpfeifengesicht. That guy who tells six jokes without noticing no-ones laughing. Its a korean word by-the-way. #enough said
Solipsism: the philosophical idea that only one’s own mind is sure to exist. Crazy and awesome.
