Every Monday, words to start the week.

This week: From Ella Frances Sanders's book, Lost in Translation, illustrations of foreign words that have no English equivalent. Examples include "kilig," which refers to the feeling of having butterflies in one's stomach; "tretar," which, in Swedish, means a second refill of coffee; and my favorite, "mangata," above. Beautiful. See more at Mental Floss. 

Three more links, just because:
-Amazing sentences.
-An imaginary classification of animals by Jorge Luis Borges includes "fabulous ones," "mermaids," and "those that from a long way off look like flies."
-"I'll see it when I believe it."

More recommended reading, here. Happy Monday!
