520    "Ever racked your brain for a word you're convinced should
       exist, yet is inexplicably absent from the dictionary? All
       languages have their limitations-should English fall short,
       the expression may lie elsewhere. That's where this book 
       comes in: a quirky, international lexicon of linguistic 
       gems that capture cultural untranslatables with satisfying
       precision. Take for example the Japanese yoko meshi, "a 
       meal eaten sideways," describing the experience of trying 
       to communicate in an alien tongue, or mono-no-aware, the 
       appreciation of life's sadness. From the distinctive 
       coziness of the Danish hygge, to the unrestrained dis of 
       the Mayan bol ("in-laws" and "stupidity"), to the profound
       collectivism of the Zulu concept of ubuntu (roughly, "I AM
       because WE ARE"), these mots justes are grouped according 
       to language and prefaced with insightful overviews of the 
       relevant cultures by linguist Christopher J. Moore. 
       Embellished with 20 entertaining new untranslatable words 
       and phrases and 90 characterful color illustrations by Lan
       Truong, and with a foreword by Simon Winchester, In Other 
       Words is amusing, profound, and unputdownable--a 
       gorgeously packaged gift book to entertain even the most 
       well-versed polyglot with marvels of language from around 
       the world."--Amazon.com.
