although i think half those 'words' are more like phrases, this article was still really cute! HAHAH
here's my favorites;
- Prozvonit - Czech
to call a phone once and hang up, hoping the other person will call back
My father is the epitome of this word HAHAHAHHA. he always does this to my mom :p
- Jayus - Indonesian
a joke told so terribly that it becomes funny
We all can identify with this, yes?
- Yuanfen - Chinese
the invisible thread said to connect some people, especially romantic couples, determined by fate
I think Mandarin is such a beautiful & complex language. I regret not picking it up. It's never too late, i guess but i doubt i'll ever be fluent enough to be able to manipulate it as well as those who are lucky enough to call it their mother tongue.
and because i google everything, i found this site, better than english and am now scrolling endlessly & wanting to post almost everything :D
