11 Untranslatable Words From Other Cultures

header-untranslatables-2Enjoy the beauty of foreign languages with us. These eleven words were defined as untranslatable on Maptia blog. Their meaning is explained by many english words. To have an ultimate feeling of beauty enjoy these words illustrated by Ella Frances Sanders.

The relationship between words and their meaning is a fascinating one, and linguists have spent countless years deconstructing it, taking it apart letter by letter, and trying to figure out why there are so many feelings and ideas that we cannot even put words to, and that our languages cannot identify.

I love to be the language teacher.
