Taylor, Andrew  
The Greeks Had a Word for It: Words You Never Knew You Can't Do Without
Do you ever search in vain for exactly the right word? Perhaps you want to articulate the vague desire to be far away. Or you can't quite convey that odd urge to go outside and check to see if anyone is coming. Maybe you're struggling to express there being just the right amount of something - not too much, but not too little. While the English may not have a word for it, the good news is that the Greeks, the Norwegians, the Dutch, or possibly the Inuits probably do. This delightful assortment of words from around the world will come to the rescue when the English language fails.
