I recently came across a wonderful Cymraeg blog called The Welsh Word of the Day, where you can see different words in Welsh, along with the translation and pronunciation in English. You may even submit a word or words for translation–just words, however, not sentences or quotes, because that would entail a HUGE workload for the site admin, Mathew Hayes. He’s providing a great way for anyone with Welsh or Celtic heritage in general to learn a bit of the beautiful Welsh language.
Hiraeth (HE•rieth) Noun: -A Welsh word that has no direct English translation. The University of Wales, Lampeter attempts to define it as homesickness tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed. It is a mix of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, and the earnest desire for the past. Hiraeth bears considerable similarities with the Portuguese concept of saudade (a key theme in Fado music), Galician morriña and Romanian dor.
Hiraeth. In Welsh: a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was, the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for the lost places of your past. It has no direct translation in English.
