Lost for words

Do you ever have a word on the tip of your tongue and can’t get it out? One that would convey exactly how you feel?

For people whose mother tongue is not the language surrounding them, that can happen a lot. And not just because they can’t think of the word. In that other language, that word doesn’t always exist.

Our Icelandic reporter, Anna M. Clausen, set out to find words that don’t translate into English.
