If you do have an inchoate vocabulary and haven't yet indulged in the profligacy of our English language, we suggest you take a look at this list sui generis. But uh—just so we get things straight. Baldenfreude is a ersatz Maureen Dowd word, so don't bother checking your Merriam Webster. Whew. (Buzzfeed)
