Event description

Description

Are there positive experiences which can't be expressed in English, but which there are words for in other languages? If so, what is the significance of these so-called untranslatable words? These are the questions that will be explored in this presentation, in which Tim Lomas will share the latest updates on his ‘positive cross-cultural lexicography’ project (www.drtimlomas.com/lexicography), which aims to explore untranslatable words relating to wellbeing from across the world’s languages.
