Untranslatable Words Card Set

Perfect words from other languages.

There are lots of moods, needs and feelings that our own language has not yet properly pinned down. The perfect word - even if it comes from abroad - helps us explain ourselves to other people, and its existence quietly reassures us (and everyone else) that a state of mind is not really rare, just rarely spoken of. The right word brings dignity to our troubles and helps us identify more accurately what we really like or find annoying. 

 

We've gathered together our favourite words from the world's languages and married them up with complementary images to create cards that bring some of our most important feelings into focus.

Read more on how words help us to feel things on our blog, The Book of Life.
