Just stop arguing - you can't outargue me. I won't respond to anything more you say here that isn't constructive.

What I'd want in English: gogglot, but for a human being.

I wish there were a clear and concise word in English for the Japanese 貧乏揺すり binbōyusuri: unconscious tapping or shaking, especially with your foot (and especially while sitting). We all know this and almost all of us do it, but there's no simple term for it.

I would call that fidgeting, from being uncomfortable or restless. As a phenomenon, I've heard it called a "nervous or unconscious tic". It might also be called a "stim".

FWIW, I've never seen Fremdscham. It's always the verb, sich fremdschämen 'feel ashamed for someone else'.

I've just found out about the Latin word sopio: a caricature of a man with a large penis, like in graffiti. It's something we see in everyday life but have no name for!

"to obligate sbdy to accomodate you"

"I don't typically eat meat, but I didn't say anything at that point because I didn't want to _______ him."

Perhaps this is in the wrong thread, but flipping through a Tangut dictionary, I found that it has a single word for "excrement of insects".

The Tohono O'odham have such a single word as well.

I know this because they, in a moment of poetic semantic drift, applied it to punctuation. Commas, quote marks, periods, and so forth are, collectively, "fly shit". This is in the O'odham dictionary, at any rate.

Tonkawa has a word for "to kill someone by an ejection of fetid fluid".

At least Anglicize it entirely? Morningmuffle?

Unfortunately since we already have muffle it is unlikely to work out well...

'Chiaroscuro' is one which I wish English had coined first. We've pretty much borrowed it straight from the Italian.
