There’s a German word, Gemutlichkeit, that means the experience of eating and drinking and socializing with loved ones.  It isn’t only eating or drinking or socializing — it’s all three.  It must be all three.  When they come together, it has meaning.

[This is why the study of foreign languages is so important.  I struggle to think of a single English word which means the combination of multiple (two let alone three) acts creating / making an emotional state.  It’s hard to say whether German or English is a more specific language.    —    kmab]
