I stumbled upon this via emma c. and thought it was quite an interesting little find.
Aren't these little words so neat?! It's like someone thought of a word for every circumstance... like who knew there was a word for the embarrassment you feel watching someone else's humiliation? Or the feeling one gets when realizing something one once had is lost and can never be had again? Sometimes I wish the English language had better words to describe things... Like in the Hebrew language, there are four different main ways to say love (amongst others, i believe) and they all represent different degrees of love (ie. i love my shoes vs. i love her). We English-speaking folks just cannot compete!
