Words are the way of the world. They allow us to communicate, express and feel like no other. Some words are for general use while others serve a special purpose and have specific uses. Some more than others, such as my favorite word, Schadenfreude. Schadenfreude is one of the most unique words I’ve ever come across. It’s a german word used in English because there is no translation for it. Schadenfreude roughly means to take pleasure in someone else’s misfortune. The fact that it has such a bizarre meaning, subject to german only, with no direct translation makes it my favorite. Plus it just sounds cool and is fun to say.Tags: Okemos High School
