According to the “Oxford English Dictionary” there are at least 171,000 words in the English language. But we don’t have a word for everything. Here are eight weird things other countries have words for, but we don’t . . .
1. Utepils. (OOH-ta-pilz) It’s Norwegian for “outside beer.” It’s when you have a drink while enjoying the outdoors.
2. Sobremesa. (so-bre-MAY-suh) It’s a Spanish word that means “over the table.” It’s when you sit and keep talking after dinner’s over.
3. Engili. (EN-guh-lee) In parts of India, it’s a term for food that someone’s already taken a bite out of.
4. Shemomedjamo. (sheh-mo-meh-CHAHMO) In the country of Georgia, it’s a word for when you’re full, but keep eating anyway. They also have a much shorter way of saying “day after tomorrow.” The word for it is “zeg.”
5. Kummerspeck. (KOOMER-shpeck) It’s a German word that literally means “grief bacon.” It’s when you overeat because you’re sad about something.
