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 Englis h fall short, the expression may lie elsewhere. That's where this book comes in: a quirky, international lexicon of linguistic gems that capture certain moments or things with satisfying precision. The mots justes are grouped according to language and pref aced with insightful overviews of the relevant cultures.
