The Language of Love : When English words just aren't enough

Sometimes ‘I Love You’ just doesn’t cut it. Here’s a collection of untranslatable words, gathered from around the world, that may help voice your heart’s desire when the English language can’t.

Often, when trying to express some deep emotion, words aren't enough. When we find ourselves in these situations, when our incomprehensible longing or deep despair become too much to bottle up, we sigh, scream, and often cry. Because any word used is insufficient.

The Language of Love is a collection of clever illustrations that define specific romantic words and idiomatic expressions from around the world, each of which are expressed in such a unique way that they have no direct English translation" (via).
