Mind the gap. This week we’re looking for words for the things, feelings and experiences we don’t yet have names for. Featuring grief bacon, coughing and breaking wind at the same time, the nervousness you feel when you can’t remember someone’s name and Jimmy Carr’s backpfeifengesicht. A Somethin’ Else Production

Susie’s trio of new words are:

Confelicity: finding pleasure in someone else’s happiness (the opposite of schadenfreude)

Pana po'o: Hawaiian word meaning to scratch your head while trying to remember something

Groaking: to look enviously at someone else’s food in the hope they might share it with you.
