8 Words that should be added in English Dictionary

Harvey Specter Rocks !

I encountered a Facebook page that shares very exquisite German, Greek, French, Latin and Arabic words along with the meanings. Since many new words have been added to the dictionary recently, these beautiful words should have a place there too.

These are the kind of words that we yearn for, while writing prose in English and then come up with a bunch of senseless words giving almost the same meaning.While fighting with my writer’s block I exercised these. Here’s how my exercise came out:

1- La douleur exquise (The heart-wrenching pain of wanting the affection of someone unattainable)

An explanation of abandoned love, broken dreams and unfulfilled wishes in one word.

I can feel a piercing la douleur exquise at a place where my heart is. The pain mixes with my blood and flows through the veins…to my heart. Each pore of my body burns with it but I can’t supplicate for a cure. Love hath no cure.

2- Lalochezia (The emotional relief gained from using abusive or profane language)

Have you felt lalochezia ever ?

I felt lalochezia after half an hour of slapping and punching her in the face but she was standing there, in the same condition as she did before. I felt all my efforts of tearing her apart going in vain. I have to think of another plan to get rid of this freakish scary doll that my wife had brought from the market and placed near my bed.

3- CafuneΒ (Running your fingers through your lover’s hair)

Complete definition of ‘romantic’ in one word.

You lie here, head in my lap and I cafune you. In those moments, clock stops ticking as if it holds it’s breath to listen to our’s. I hold your hand with closed eyes, sensing peaceful embrace of your love and asks myself, “Can life be more beautiful than that?

4,5- Dormiveglia (The space that stretches between sleeping and waking), Clinomania (excessive desire to stay in bed)

I love this state of neither sleeping nor awoke completely. I often see best dreams in this state. And clinomania ? It’s my evergreen best friend.

I love you even more in dormiveglia. Your tranquilizing whispers “Wake up My Love” drench my soul leaving it thirsty for your touch. I enjoy a peaceful dormiveglia with clinomania everyday till my son comes crying “I have wet my bed again, Mommy!”.

6- Apodyopsis (The act of mentally undressing someone)

Okay that’s completely lame.

He loved her blindly until one day she sat in front of him in the classroom and he got indulged in a little apodyosis. Turned out, She’s a Man !!

7- Jaaneman (Soul of me)

I love this Urdu word. It sounds cheesy if used normally but life feels good with some cheesiness, sometimes.

Here in the East, when some random guy has to flirt with a random girl, he says, “Oye Jaaneman ! Aik Jadu Ki Japhi tu de de” (Hey Jaaneman ! Give me the magical hug) and she often gives him the magical hug with her slippers.

8- Orenda (Β A mystical force present in all people that empowers them to effect the world, or to change their own lives)

I have discovered orenda lying deep inside my soul after several hours of mystic imagination. I am going to change the world. “Change your own pajamas first that you are wearing upturned since the morning, huh ! He will change the world” My wife replies with frowns on her forehead.

You can find many more interesting words on this Facebook page. I’d love to know how you use them in your writings.

  1. i literally loved and felt connected with no. 1-5.. the are just awesome! lets speak to oxford dictionary and persuade them to append their list πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

    • Yes I agree ! I Love this beautiful state too. I can understand some words seem completely weird but the meanings are just wonderful. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts πŸ™‚ My Love to you xx

  2. Nice words, Lala. Will I ever use ’em scratches bald head But I’ll say this – anytime I’m driving along said daredevil motorists I usually need some Lalochezia to get by, lol. Anyway, I’m a huge Suits fan. I guess I better mosey down to the facebook page like a good lad. Bye for now!

    • Haha Thank you Jollof ! You can use them obviously I loved them as I love writing poetic things and these words are best for it. Lol your sentence made me smile πŸ˜› Brilliant use. Thanks a bunch and Much love to you.SO glad you stopped by ! Love you xx

  3. Well..my favorite ones are cafune and orenda…

    The cafune reminds me of one Summer in Youth at about age 18 with my head in my first girlfriend’s lap..her stroking my hair..and me never ever never ever never ever ..wanting to change that feeling ever never ever…

    A feeling of comfort..i would soon never have again..like hugging a human cat..cats..give me that feeling too..but only a small bit..not a whole human bit…..

    And it’s any one’s fault after that..that i didn’t experience it again..i guess it ‘s just a chemical reaction of that human kinda love..i no longer had….and no longer gained….

    Well..each day i wake up to change the world..so Orenda sounds good..but then my wife says eat your breakfast..and i forget..and i forget..and i forget..so finally she puts a sticky note..on my computer…to remind me what to do…

    So..yah..i guess i ain’t quite ready to change the world yet..if i cannot remember to eat breakfast….

    love ya and this was fun…i like fun..:)

  4. you have made your writer’s block a productive friend – turned a stale moment into a brilliant one, and learned a few more nifty words, too. good on ya! πŸ™‚

  5. Dear Lala,
    Brilliant Post! I’m Definitely going to add these to my vocabulary. πŸ˜„

    Your Friend,
    Anastasia πŸ˜„

  6. well, see there, you bounce back from writer’s block extremely well. that is a very interesting piece, and those words do need to be in our english language as we are impoverished without them. i am ever suffering from la douleur exquise, and so often seek comfort in lalochezia. very good and instructive.

    Aur agar prompt chaahiye to bol… deta rahunga… πŸ™‚

    And… ek help chaahiye thi… agar aaj kal free ho to… So tell me if you are free…

  9. Great post, I love ‘Jaaneman’… it reminds me of ‘Moon of my life’ and ‘my Sun and Stars’ from Game of Thrones. Just sounds so pretty.

    • Yes I love this word too…. Sounds so romantic and sweet. Ah, game of thrones….Love it and love you for your amazing thoughts πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping by ! Hugs xx

  10. My orenda seems overpowered by my lackadaisical state of clinomania. ‘Tis the overpowering effect of early dark nights followed by dark mornings, a winter state of hibernation tries to take control of me . Totally enjoyed your snippets of word usage, as I love words , whispered, toned, and shapely, they almost dance by their own violition. xx

    • WOW I so enjoyed your lines…Very beautiful poetic response ! Amazing.
      You have described my writing in such a beautiful way that I have no words to thank you or say anything to you…I am speechless by the magic of you….. LOVE you loads ! Many many thanks for stopping by to share your wonderful words. I love you xx

  11. “Sillage

    (n.) the scent that lingers in air, the trail left in water, the impression made in space after something or someone has been and hone; the trace of someone’s perfume.”

    I love what that page posts.

  12. I will lobby for Jaaneman, for sure. I will pay with my heart and soul, if need be. Kya kare, the word is like that.

  13. Some of the cheesiest words today are cheesy because of the overuse and their use in wrong context. The actual meaning of the words have so much depth and…… (I can’t even pull words to describe these pure words) .

  14. Some of the cheesiest words today are cheesy because of the overuse and their use in wrong context. Their a actual meaning has so much depth and (I can’t even pull words to describe these pure words.)

    • You are right…I can’t agree more. See that urdu word it’s meaning is so sweet and pure but the way our youth uses it, It gets dirty. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Majhuka ! It’s a pleasure to have you here πŸ™‚ Stay blessed ! xx

Please share your thoughts, I value them !
