There Are Giant Holes In The English Language And This New Web Series Is Filling Them

To better understand what The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is, this their bio from their YouTube Channel:

"The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is a compendium of invented words written by John Koenig. Each original definition aims to fill a hole in the language—to give a name to emotions we all might experience but don’t yet have a word for. Follow the project, give feedback, suggest an emotion you need a word for, or just tell me about your day." –YouTube Bio
