Wordplay Saturday (week 2)

Bohemian Vistas

Yeah.. so we are in the second week of wordplay! And this week I am going to tell you about an interesting Portuguese word :-

Apaixonar -its a reflexive pronoun and it’s translation in English would be “to fall in love”. But English does not have an exact translation for the world! Actually it relates to some place in between liking someone and falling in love with that person. It’s sort of an affection that is too blurry to be clearly described. That really freaking “do I or do I not ” part we all go through at some point of time! 🙂 It is also rarely used as a transitive which loosely translates to “to make someone fall in love “…

Isn’t it fascinating just how many words English doesn’t really have!!
