I learn something new everday.

It’s difficult getting a new word into a poetic vocabulary. And does it make it easier to translate these new words (with the universality of the internet, new words span languages sometimes) or harder? And maybe one language has a well worn track through the language neural pathways for something that is only newly observed in another. It’s the nitty-gritty.
