words that don't exist in the English language

one word in Portuguese I really wish we had is "SAUDADE" - a deep emotional state of nostalgic longing for something or someone that one was fond of and which is lost (wiki definition). It's how I feel about my home country of Brazil sometimes, especially during the holidays: extreme "saudade". Sigh. Well, here are a few other interesting words that apparently don't exist in English.
