Words—just words

This is where I list some of my favourite words. 

Sammeltassen: Collection of mismatched teacups and saucers. 

Schadenfreude:  A German word that's used by English speakers. Means joy at another's pain.

Sehnsucht: A yearning sort of like homesickness, but without a known cure. Sailors have Sehnsucht for the sea, and then at sea they have Sehnsucht for land. It might be one of my most favourite words. 

Taphophile: Someone interested in graveyards and headstones. (Who knew there was a name for this!)
