This list of awesome words came from Ella Frances Sanders, who’s compiled some of the most evocative words from around the world in her new illustrated book, Lost in Translation.
1. Warmduscher (German)
This is what Germans call someone who only ‘takes warm showers,’ implying that they’re somewhat wussy.
2. Tsundoku (Japanese)
When you leave a book unread after buying it and you pile it up up together with all of your other unread books.
