Swedish

This beautiful Swedish word refers to the road-like reflection of the moon on the water. It’s the long, wavy shape that appears across the water when the moon is shining on it. It is made up of the prefixes “Måne” meaning moon, and “gata” meaning street/road. For this reason,  it is sometimes indirectly translated as “moon-path,” “moon-river,” “moon-track,” or “moon-wake.”
