Infographic - Weekly Feature Each Saturday on Robyns.WorldThis week’s infographic is all about words. Specifically 11 untranslatable words from other cultures. It is always so interesting to me to learn words and phrases and their origins. If you are familiar with the late comic, George Carlin, you might remember his fascination with language as well. Napalm and Silly Putty is one of Carlin’s books that is all about words and phrases and is not only interesting but also hysterical, I highly recommend it. Another great book, although not funny, is the QPB Encyclopedia of Word and Phrase Origins by Robert Hendrickson. This one has over 9000 words and phrases that give you a history that is often so interesting!

Do you have a favorite word or phrase? What is it and why do you like it so much?
