  • Gluggaveður is a popular word on the net, perhaps because it has been promoted as one of a list of words in Icelandic that could be usefully borrowed into other languages. "'Window-weather' describes weather that 'is nice to look at through a window, but not nice to be out in.'”

    The eth character (ð) is pronounced like a furry version of the English th, or, as Wikipedia has it: "In Icelandic, ð represents a (usually apical) voiced alveolar non-sibilant fricative ..." It is best to find an audible pronunciation online to get the idea.

    The strange gods of Iceland bequeath her
    A magical shape-shiftng ether.
    Where fire burns on ice
    And fine views entice
    That the unwary find gluggaveður.

    One rubber-chicken-wavy solution that often seems to work in cases such as this is favoriting a problem word before trying to comment or list it.
