Create a New Word

Monday, 19 July 2010   |   Creativity Games

It's interesting how different languages have words for which there is no equivalent in other languages.  This is referred to as untranslatability.  You can describe the word but there is no direct word mapping between the languages. For example the French word electromenager in English would be home electric appliance.  Another example is the Inuit that have many words for snow,  eg clim for snow sparkling with flashlight or headlight.
