Post subject:  Words you've learned recently

I didn't manage to find a thread we could use for listing and reviewing vocabulary we've learned in any language, including our native language, so I thought I'd try starting one and posting some new Malayalam words I learned here. :)

കൽഗം [ˈkəlgəm] 'turkey'
ച്ചുക്ലോത്തി അടിക്കുക [t͡ʃuˈkɭoːt̪i əˈɖikʲʊga] 'to chat idly', a slangy enough expression that I had to learn it from my dad and it's not in our dictionary
പ്രായശ്ചിത്തം [ˈpraːjəɕt͡ʃɪt̪əm] 'atonement'
വിരക്തി [ʋiˈɾəkt̪i] 'detachment, disinterestedness, lack of interest in worldly affairs'
ഞെക്കുവിളക്ക് [ɲɛˈkɯʋɪɭəkɯ] 'torch, flashlight'

Post subject:  Re: Vocab lists yaaaay!

I think this thread could use a better title, such as "Words you recently learned". "Vocab lists yaaaay!" sounds like a thread for links to vocab lists and glossaries.

I recently learned how "spew" and "primp" are actually used in English. I kinda had an idea of what they meant but not quite. It's always seemed to me like there's a never ending parade of little monosyllabic Germanic verbs I don't really know. It wasn't too many months ago that I learned "snoop" and "slouch".

Thread title changed to "Words you've learned recently" but with the implicit understanding that I'm using a very loose definition of "recently" ;)

Within the last hour I learned condemnable, though that may be acceptable only in Indian English.

Reading Stifter yesterday evening, I learned that Gerät could once be used to refer to all indoor furnishings, not just "tools" or "equipment", which is what I think of the word meaning in the contemporary language.

Earlier today I learned the name for "[beverage] coaster" in several languages, including Welsh (mata diod), Catalan (sotagot or rodal), Spanish (posavasos), and Limey (beer mat).

I recently learned 法定調書合計表 hōteichōshogōkeihyō "legal record total table"

I don't really know what it is though, but I have to get one from my company.

It's コースター kōsutā in Japanese. Just borrowed from English.

Post subject:  Re: Words you've learned recently

We have plenty of these at our house, yet for the longest time, I had no idea what they were even called in English. In Malayalam, I'm not sure we ever bother talking about them. A lot of my mom's friends don't even seem to have coasters, and the usual practice at their parties seems to be to just let people hold their drinks then just keep their glasses on the floor as long as they're out of foot traffic (and take everybody's empty glasses once everyone is presumably done).

I've got a can of beer on a coaster right now.

Post subject:  Re: Words you've learned recently

Oh yes! Score! I discovered a French word that just makes me so happy! "Farfelu" or harebrained, bizarre, scatterbrained. I'm as happy as the time I discovered "loufoque" or zany. These are just fun words to say. Another fun one is "se faufiler" or to snake in and out, but unfortunately, unlike the first two which will be great fun to incorporate into my vocabulary, I can only make up so many excuses to say the last one.

One of things I love about French are its expressions. I recently learned "ne pas y aller par quatre chemins" which is about as awesome as the English equivalent "to not beat around the bush." It's not up there with epic expressions like "pleuvoir comme vache qui pisse" but it's still pretty great.

Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, is known for using obscure words of Latin origin, examples of which...

execration, an act or instance of cursing; a curse dictated by violent feelings of hatred
inculcate, to teach through repetition
inanition, emptiness

Author:  Salmoneus [ Wed Mar 02, 2016 5:48 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Words you've learned recently

... dear lord, people now feel that "inculcate" is an obscure word? [I'll grant you inanition].

No wonder people like Boris are able to manipulate and overawe the electorate so easily.

You can, but you can't just go around replacing ik by ikke.

It can be used for extra emphasis and contrast, but it may come across as childish.

A 'normal' context could be:
A: "Je ruimt ook nooit je papieren op!"
B: "Ikke?! Je moet eens naar je eigen buro kijken"
