|Subject: Re: Saudade|
Hello Ziners -
Brazilians are very proud - really - of the term saudade They are convinced that there is no similar word in any other language. And it is true! The word has an intrinsic meaning that no translation can give a complete meaning.
It is a mixture of fond remembrance, yearning, homesickness when referred to home or country, and much more.
