What does “Iktsuarpok” mean?

You know that feeling when you’re waiting for someone to arrive and you feel so impatient that you keep checking the door to see if they’re here yet? Sometimes it’s a friend, and sometimes it’s something you’ve ordered and you just can’t wait for it to be delivered! Well there’s a useful word for this in the Inuit dictionary. It’s Itskuarpok (pronounced eek-soow-uhr-pohk), and it’s just perfect to describe that heady impatient feeling of waiting for something to arrive!
