The Deliciousness of Words – V

In continuation from earlier… Having come across a collection of some of the most evocative words in languages other than English that have no direct equivalents – and each of which having struck a chord in me – I’m going to post them a couple at a time, with explanations (not mine) and complementary visuals, for you to savour.

And guys, the usual request  – can we make this interactive, where you can also contribute some more in languages you speak / know, which I will compile?

This week, I know I’m too old to do this now, but remember those rainy days?

Mbuki-mvuki

A word in Bantu for “to shed clothes to dance uninhibited”

It’s a pity that age brings restraint at the cost of spontaneity 😦
