Words That Should Exist In English

Oops! (ha ha ha ha ha ha)Pena ajena (Mexican Spanish): The embarrassment you feel watching someone else’s humiliation.

Pochemuchka (Russian): a person who asks a lot of questions.

Schadenfreude (German): the pleasure derived from someone else’s pain.

Sgriob (Gaelic): The itchiness that overcomes the upper lip just before taking a sip of whisky.

In the comments section of this post is another one we especially like: “Kummerspeck“, “…which refers to excess weight gained due to emotional overeating. The word translates literally to “grief bacon”.”
