Interesting Word : Tierra del Fuego

“Mamihlapinatapai” is a Yaghan word from Tierra del Fuego, meaning “a look shared by two people, each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start.” It’s a complex concept that doesn’t have an equivalent in English, and the word has become well-known as an example of the richness and complexity of indigenous languages around the world.
