Untranslatable wotd: koi no yokan

Not finding the right words to describe a feeling that completely takes your breath away, these are the moments I live for… I love words, they’re my most trusted friends cause I always manage to say the right things, convey the message I intend to, and generally make the person hearing my words and myself ecstatic. But there are some sentiments that, no matter how hard you try, you can never describe in just words…

Lately, one of my favourite things to do when I have a few minutes to spare is look up untranslatable words. Words in languages that have no equivalent words in English.. And some of the ones I found have become a big part of my vocabulary.. I just knew I had to share it.. So here goes.. 🙂

Koi No Yokan (Japanese)

The sense one has upon first meeting that the two of you are going to fall in love.

I hope you like them as much as I do.
