some marvellous words there. 

TOTD has long tried to introduce the word ‘dunk’ to the English language.  (The u is pronounced less like an ‘uh’ and more like a very soft ‘o’ so it’s *almost* like ‘doonk’ but with a much shorter vowel sound). It’s the Swedish word for the plastic containers you fetch water in while camping.  And of course they make a satisfying ‘dunk’  sound when you hit an empty one.
