Grief bacon, and other words we need in English

These are some words that we don’t have just one word for in English. But maybe we should.

There’s one Japanese word on the list. Do you think it fits? Are there others you’d add? How about words in your major language?

One thing I dislike about lists like this is that they say “untranslatable.” Of course we can translate the idea, just maybe not in one or two concise words.
