Word of the Week: Saudade

Word of the Week

Saudade: (saow•da•gee) noun. Untranslatable Portuguese word conveying nostalgia and longing for anyone, anywhere, or anything that is far away, unobtainable, or a part of a past.

saudade

 


Side note: This is more of a feeling, and the feeling went unrecognized until I had the word saudade to put with it. THANK YOU PORTUGUESE. (Also, obviously, the pronunciation is Brazilian…because…Brazil has my heart.)

Extra side note: This is probably my favorite word that I’ve ever learned…except for maybe 60 in French. soixante. mmmmmm yes.
