Everyone’s like “those Germans have a word for everything” but English has a word for tricking someone into watching the music video for Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up.
English has a lot more words created for very specific phenomena! It’s not just rick-rolling. Language is always evolving and it’s super interesting! Here’s a list of hyper-specific/untranslatable words in English.
Oh man, I didn’t even know half of those, and I was an English major at one point.
Kira: is really into the first half where Hamilton is fighting for independence
Quark: is really into the second half where Hamilton is fighting for a strong economy
Rom: thinks the music was pretty
Odo: just wants people to stop singing off-key on the Promenade
Kai Winn: takes the Aaron Burr character personally and calls for a boycott, backtracks when it turns out a lot of Bajorans like the show and there’s a backlash, ends up funding her own production of it in which she cuts all the speeches she feels are too incendiary
Jadzia Dax: massive crushes on the Schuyler sisters, Hamilton, and Jefferson
Ezri Dax: keeps changing her mind as to who she most identifies with
O’Brien: immediately makes a Revolutionary War program for himself and Julian
Bashir: keeps calling Garak ‘Hercules Mulligan’
Garak: pretends not to get the joke, tries to bring back petticoats
Worf: passive-aggressively sends fourteen copies of the soundtrack to Alexander
Alexander: completely misses the point his dad was trying to make, goes into musical theatre
Dukat: writes lot of angsty fic about how King George is misunderstood and misrepresented
Nog: starts quoting it as a historical source in Starfleet Academy essays
Jake Sisko: abandons novel, begins working on musical
Ben Sisko: will not stop humming ‘Guns and Ships’
Kira: commander, you and I both know that the Dominion’s got tactical and material superiority, to say nothing of the numerical advantage
Sisko: major, are you saying that we
Sisko: pardon me major but it sounds very much like you are saying that we aRE
Kira: please don’t
Sisko: WE ARE OUTGUNNED
Kira: stop it
Kira: you are supposed to be a representative of my gods
Kira: I hope the Dominion kills you
Kira: I’m an atheist now
