    About Lost in Translation. From the author of Eating the Sun, an artistic collection of more than 50 drawings featuring unique, funny, and poignant foreign words that have no direct translation into English Did you know that the Japanese language has a word to express the way sunlight filters through the leaves of trees? Or that there’s a Finnish word for the distance a reindeer . From Mark Forsyth’s The Horologicon. There are many words within the English language that have fallen out of use over time.

Whether diagramming sentences, reciting the appropriate participle in my Catholic school days, or delving into the case systems of Latin and Russian, I’ve always been uncommonly excited by the rules and regulations of the written word. I appreciate that I’m one of a select few for whom the mere mention of morphemes causes the pulse to race, but the beauty .
