words1Saudade: Portuguese; pronounced [sɐwˈðaðɨ] (sow-dadj) It means longing of a kind that is not entirely translatable. It is a nostalgia, or a yearning for things, people, places or circumstances long gone. This longing can be tinged with joy or sorrow. Similar perhaps to the German word Sehnsucht.
