Make Up 12 English Words and Expressions

    2. Being birdy

    Being mad. From the pictorial expression that a crazy person has a bird that is up to mischief in their head.

    3. Larm

    As far as I know, the English language doesn't have a word for a noise that is loud and annoying at the same time.

    4. Lookable

    In the sense of: Be so vivid and clear that an understandable picture emerges immediately. An equivalent of "anschaulich".

    Big and pompous in nature.

    6. Forthpulling

    So wonderful that it pulls you off your feet.

    9. Look-down-shy

    10. Homet

    11. Damage joy

    Literal translation of the word "Schadenfreude": The joy one feels when a misfortune befalls an unloved person.

    12. Foam beater
