We all sometimes wish how there should be words for certain things. It would be a lot easier for us to just say the word rather than explaining what you are trying to say but can’t find the word for to people.
The crying of a newborn baby. Yeah it sounds like a naughty word but it is actually not. In this case, probably just saying “the crying of a newborn baby” would be more appropriate than saying the word itself. Try using that word on first dates, let us know how many slaps you received from girls.
The holder around a coffee cup without a handle. It is typically a cardboard sleeve around the hot beverage you just got from Starbucks to prevent you from scorching your fingers. Also, the name of an alien in every sci-fi movie.
To become dark. An antonym of ‘sparkle’.
A person guided by personal advantage rather by consistent, respectable principles. Think of every politician ever.
Anything that resembles a butt. You can proceed to have fun with that word now... like calling your friend ‘natiform face’.
It is the ‘hatred of sound’, a brain disorder characterized by negative experiences resulting only from specific sounds, whether loud or soft. People with misophonia are usually annoyed, or ever enraged, by other sounds like other people eating, breathing, yawning, brushing teeth; certain consonants or repetitive sounds. Some are also affected by visual stimuli like repetitive foot or body movements. People who have misophonia may develop intense anxiety and avoidant behaviour which can lead to decreased socialization.
The day after tomorrow. In case you’re wondering why people just do not use the shorter, more simplified version to refer to the day after next, can you imagine if the movie was titled ‘Overmorrow’ instead of ‘The Day After Tomorrow’? It would have lost all its dramatic, cinematic effect.
The space between the eyebrows. So if someone has a unibrow, would he still have a glabella?
The groove running down between your nose and upper lip. Some say that the phitrum was created to direct mucus down into your mouth.
The mishearing or misinterpretation of lyrics in a song. Which might make Shania Twain sound like she’s singing,
“You're one of those guys who likes to shine his machine
You make me take off my shoes before you let me get in
I can't believe you kiss your cock at night
C'mon baby tell me-you must be jokin', right!”
