Link: 14 Words with No English Equivalent

I thought you guys might enjoy this cute link, which describes words in other languages that can't be directly translated into English. I think the two I'm most likely to adopt in my own speech are "tartle," the feeling of panic you get just before having to introduce someone whose name you don't remember (Scotland), and "pelinti," moving hot food around in your mouth so you don't burn your tongue (Ghana).

Don't forget that the hangout is going ahead today at 11am PST on Google+! I hope to see you there!
