what is a lexical gap?
A lexical gap or lacuna is an absence of a word in a particular language... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexical_gap
so, for example there is a word for a child who lost his parents(orphan) but we dont have a word for a parent who lost a kid??
trying to think of other examples
Oh... that's really cool... I didn't know this.
