This one's the opposite. I wish other languages had a word for "just" that was used as often as it is in English. I know French has "juste" but it's not used as often as English "just." We're obsessed with this word!

Too obsessed. Ninety-nine times out of a hundred you can remove "just" from a sentence and lose nothing. When editing a piece of writing, one of the first things I do is remove all instances of "just".

Edit: the option to enable bbcode doesn't appear. That's some old bullshit.

'Echdoe', 'echnos', and 'drenydd'. Not being able to say 'the day before yesterday' is tremendously annoying.

Yes. Also, 'the day after tomorrow'.

Off-topic: Why is BBCode deactivated in this thread for me? Berek too, it seems.

Spanish has the word compadre which expresses the relationship between a father and a godfather. Presumably there are similar words involving mothers and godmothers. English doesn't have words for these, but it should.
