Words not in my language

While reading the book When Elephants Weep: The Emotional Lives of Animals , I happened upon the word funktionslust, which means ‘the pleasure in what one does best”. In the English language, we don’t have a word for that, but it struck me as odd how many other words we don’t have in our language.


What other words do you know of that you want to share?
