Audio Recap: Untranslatable words

Words. There are so many of them, but did you know that there are words in other languages which do not have a direct translation? I know! It’s totes crazy, right? Check out some of these sweet words:




Istories me arkoudes (Greek)Gattara (Italian)Schadenfreude (Like you don’t know what this word means.)


So here is the prompt: Take one of words listed in this Huffington Post article and center a story around it. You do not have to use the word in the story, but the meaning of the word must be involved in the story. Bonus points (+150 words) if it's set in the culture that the word comes from.

Now BEG for mercy, PLEAD for forgiveness, and…WRITE TO THE DEATH!
