You know when you’re feeling something and you just can’t come up with the right word to describe the emotion. Apparently part of the problem comes from the limitations of the language(s) you speak. According to this infographic, English has no word equivalent for at least 19 different emotions.
And we definitely need to come up with words for some of these. I know I’d like to have a word for the feeling of “comfort and coziness of being at home, with friends, with loved ones, or general togetherness.” And why doesn’t it surprise me that Russian is the language with a word for feeling an “ache of soul, a longing with nothing to long for.”
I do have to register one disagreement, though. English has long had a word for “the bubbly feeling of the moment of falling in love.” It’s called “twitterpated.”
