Tartle:The act of hestitating while introducing someone because you’ve forgotten their name.
Autodidact: Being a largely self-taught person on most things, I like the word, because it describes the kind of person who wants to learn and understand.
Inshallah:It can be a genuine sentiment, such as when talking to an old friend and parting with “We’ll meet again, inshallah,”.
Immolate:Admittedly at first grasp, it is a dark word, but I believe it to be not fully justified until further inspection. It’s basis is fire, which is in itself life, yet of course it means to sacrifice one’s self and ultimately, death.
Apodyopsis: the act of mentally undressing someone.
Meretricious: Attracting attention in a vulgar manner; plausible but false or insincere; specious.
Snorker: According to an 1808 English dictionary, snorker is an insult that means “one who smells at objects like a dog” and implies getting into other people’s business.
Alexithymia: inability to describe emotions in a verbal manner
Abyssopelagic: of, like or pertaining to the depths of the ocean.
Koyaanisqatsi: This Native American word means “nature out of balance” or a “way of life that is so crazy it calls for a new way of living”.
Nehrotit to:Literally, it means “Not to make [the situation] into a sharp point.” Its literal meaning is almost equivalent to a shrug of the shoulders, a declaration that one is not going to stress about something, or, more generally, that one is not going to stress about anything.
Milquetoast: one who has a meek, timid, unassertive nature.
Necromancy: the practice of supposedly communicating with the spirits of the dead in order to predict the future.
Treppenwitz:In German, this is literally “the wit of the staircase,” or the witty remark that occurs to you after you’ve left an argument you’ve lost. It’s a feeling everyone knows rather well.
Saudade: Someone once called it, “vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist.”
Magari: For example, I could have said to the Italians who were eager to board our delayed flight, “Don’t worry, you’ll make your connection.” They would have responded with “magari!”
Panthalassa: "universal sea," such as that which surrounded Pangaea.
Johansson was so determined to avoid looking like a movie star pretending to be a zookeeper running on empty and fueled only by her devotion to her motley assortment of big cats, zebras, and kangaroos that she refused to wear makeup for the film. A big deal for a female movie star, but it works, helping to anchor her performance in the details of actual manual labor—shoveling shit, feeding slabs of red meat to the lion and tigers—that we don’t see much of in American movies.
