Word of the Day

This article claims it provides a list of foriegn words for which there is no English equivalent. It gets at least one wrong, however. It says that there is no English word for using company time and resources for one's own purposes (which is called "fucha" in Portuguese). The English equivalent is "perruque". It is borrowed from a similar French word, and can also mean a peruke or periwig.
