Description

The subtitle of "Lost in Translation" best explains the premise of this book: An illustrated compendium of untranslatable words from around the world. "Lost in Translation" presents 50 words that do not have immediate or direct English translations. Each word is dedicated two pages – one page provides a short commentary or description, while the second page has a complimentary illustration along with a brief definition of the word. From the Malay word for "the time needed to eat a banana"(Pisan Zapra) to the Finnish word for "the distance a reindeer can comfortably travel before taking a break"(Poronkusema), these words can be conversation starters for people of any age or background and spark the imagination in all of us.
