When it comes to feelings, the English language can be severely limited. Sure, we might have approximately a quarter of a million words at our disposal, but where's the word for that drowsy feeling you get after eating a lot of food? Or what about the urge to pinch or squeeze something really cute?
Lucky for us, other languages have our back. These foreign-language feeling words aren't just fun trivia, either: A recent study by Dr. Tim Lomas suggests that learning 'well-being' vocabulary from other languages could enrich our emotional lives. That study shows there are at least 216 foreign words for positive emotions and feelings that we don't have in English, so basically, our emotional lives are about to get way richer.
