One of the delights of the English language is its extraordinarily diverse vocabulary, much of which isn't really English at all! Think of eating or cooking, and you will be reaching to the French; to the Italian for musical expression; to the German for states of mind or soul; to the Spanish or Portuguese for song and dance; to the shared Latin roots for precision and concision. Who has not endured angst or, at least, esprit d'escalier, for failing to find - pronto - le mot juste?
