9780550105998: The Untranslatables: the Most Intriguing Words from Around the World
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Enliven your mind and enrich your daily conversation with The Untranslatables, a sublime and witty lexicon of fascinatingly precise phrases, for which there aren't direct English translations.

From the German word Drachenfutter that encompasses actions aimed to diffuse a wife's fury at the appearance of her drunken husband to the national Finnish characteristic of sisu, which means something like a dogged and proud refusal to lie down and be beaten. If we don't have a word for it, we have to ask - why?
