Learn English – What can’t you describe without a picture


What do you call objects, or kinds of objects, that cannot be described without visual aids?

Best Answer

There is a phrase "beyond words", but it is not usually used for objects, more for emotions or situations.

Oops, logic has just given me a good kick - if there was a word for such objects, then such objects would cease to fall into this category. ;-)

Of course, there are words like "thing", "nondescript", "thingamajig", "visual", "spectacle", "sensory" and "picturesque", and phrases like "to be seen".
