A word from the Yaghan language of Tierra del Fuego (southern Chile) which means:

1. a look between 2 people suggesting an unspoken desire

2. a look shared by 2 people, each wishing that the other will offer something that they both desire but are unwilling to suggest or offer themselves

 

yes, no, maybe, maybe not??
