🇵🇱 szuwary - reed beds in floodplains
🇵🇱 tryzna - kind of a happy wake or funeral festivity
🇮🇹 sprezzatura - calculated nonchalance, studied carelessness

@joshavanier siri--miri, basque word for a very misty kind of rain which doesn't really make anything wet, typical for the basque country

@joshavanier also 'agur' which is pronounced like how a howling wolf sounds, which means goodbye in basque, I love to make it a long aaaouuuur
