Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation: An Illustrated Compendium of Untranslatable Words from Around the World - Ella Frances Sanders

Lost in Translation by Ella Frances Sanders is a delightful collection of over 50 words that have no direct counterpart in English. With beautiful color illustrations, the book introduces the reader to words from commonly recognized languages like Arabic and French and from little known languages like Wagiman and Nguni Bantu. This book would make a great gift for anyone who loves words and language.
