thoughts or states English doesn’t have a convenient standard-English expression for We can talk about the blahs or the dumps but there’s cultural context here and some history of the idea as a ‘state of being’ that has some cultural importance.
I could add others. Latin: “pietas”—simultaneous right relationship to the three realms of creation: celestial, terrestrial, infernal, and right relationship to your parents. “Paterfamilias” Father of the familia… head of the family with certain rights and powers, and spiritual presence—somewhat like the Godfather. Materfamilias, a tinged with the female rights and privileges; gravitas—seriousness, or weight, or ‘presence’ in the sense of having an impact on people. The -as indicates a ‘state of being’. You also have several words for brown re yellowness or not, several words for black depending on opacity/transparency; a few words for red, again with implications of transparency or not; one green; one white; one blue, really; and then you can shade them with sub- as in ‘sorta’ Subrufus = reddish.
Greek: beaucoup religious symbology, understood not as, eg, literal snakes-for-hair, but the association of snakes with the earth and under-earth, a creature that comes out of the earth. Greek lit is full of this sort of thing. Not to mention the habit of packing particles together to form an idea. The Greek title Anabasis is translated ‘the march to the sea’ but it’s made up of pieces: ana=again, or back the way you came; ba = go; sis =state of being or process…So as they’d come to where they were and decided to fight their way back out of Persia, the work is called the ‘process of going back again’ or the ‘march to the sea.’ You can go crazy learning Greek until it dawns on you at about 3 am in your third semester that it’s all a jigsaw puzzle of pieces, and they’re the same little words dressed up in a lot of suits like hypo (under) hyper (excessive/over) kata (down or flat) and that if you memorize one verb’s crazy parts, everything that rhymes with the thing in the first place behaves like it in its other parts—doesn’t work all the time, but often enough to help.
