I'd say that "and" and "so" would be of a more apt connotation.

Post subject:  Re: I wish English had a word for this!

You think that only because they use a more similar intonation pattern to na und (i.e. rising). So what doesn't use that intonation all the time, but it certainly can, and even when it doesn't, it's still perfectly interchangeable with and and so.

That much I agree with.

Post subject:  Re: I wish English had a word for this!

So you agree that na und = so what. Good.

"So what?" is a perfectly suitable translation for "Na und?" It's commonly used in the same contexts in the same way.

(I say this as a native speaker of German, which you definitely aren't, DG. Not even of Upper Bavarian.)

I'm a native speaker of English, but I often lament the absence of the word "doch" in the language. I also wish English had single words for "the day before yesterday" and "the day after tomorrow" like German and Dutch do.

I feel like there should be a "Concepts/Words Not In English" category on Wikipedia...

In Georgian there's:
გუშინწინ / gušinc̣in / the day before yesterday
გუშინ / gušin / yesterday
დღეს / dğes / today
ხვალ / xval / tomorrow
ზეგ / zeg / the day after tomorrow
მაზეგ / mazeg / the day after the day after tomorrow

Mosquito "repellant" isn't actually repelling you from them. It actually hides you from them by blocking out their senses. We need a word for this phenomenon, if there isn't one already.

Also, pronouns that distinguish between direct object and indirect object, tertiary indicative distinction, plural second person pronouns reinstated into the language, exclusive "we", a term for unknown gender (pronoun), and some it object form(s); if no one has mentioned these already.

Sehnsucht is a neat non-English word, for which plenty papers've been written.
Alternative: second meal of the day, taken during the night (it's silly to call it lunch, and it's def not a dinner!)

How is this called: the situation where everything is in the right quantity, not too much, not too little?
The closest approximations would be balance, harmony.
Has English more accurate word for it?

My best guess for the word you've looking for is optimal, but I could be wrong.
