    I like some words in Spanish which have no simple, one word translations in English. Two of my favourites are:

    - Friolero/a = someone who's cold all the time
    - Desvelarse = waking up in the middle of sleeping and not being able to get back to sleep.

    In Spanish it’s just... I don’t know, there basically aren’t many double letters in Spanish and an e can be doubled but in this word it just looks so strange, honestly don’t ask me I just have irrational hate for some words

    I quite like ‘estrenar’ - to wear an item of clothing for the first time.
    Y soy friolera aunque vivo en Escocia donde siempre hace frío jaja
    (Idk how to get spoilers on my phone but: I’m sensitive to cold though I live in Scotland where it’s always cold)

    I find the word hippopotomonstrosesquippedalioph obia particularly interesting*. It's the phobia of long words.

    Spoiler:

    And kinda ironic because the term is actually a long word.
