Emotion english doesn’t have a word for (but we still know what they are)

Well, as I’m supposedly an Emotion Researcher, this caught me. Very cool zoomable posters showing emotions that have names in other languages (but not english – in some cases in Swedish, but not always), and how they are related to the more standard, basic emotion concepts/words that you tend to find world wide.

PopSci – 21 emotions for which there are no words in english. 

Plus, the bonus: descriptions of emotions familiar to anybody who spends any time on-line.
