I noticed an interesting topic in another language forum. My native language Finnish has lots of long words and sometimes I am at a loss as to how to translate a Finnish word into English. Dictionaries don't help. Someone has posted an example of this.

Many words are sometimes needed to convey the meaning of just one Finnish word.

juoksentelisinkohan = I wonder if I should run around aimlessly

Of course no one will ever have to say that in either language.
