In my native language, we have two words to define the degrees of happiness.
One word means a high degree of happiness. Google translated my native word to "bliss", which is the correct word as I see it.
But when I was searching for another word to mean a low degree of happiness, Google translated my native word to a total unfamiliar and strange word "Posterous".
I was expecting the word "Pleasure" or something like that, but I got the word "Posterous"
And I can't even find any definition for that word in Google. Is that even a word?
And can I use the word "Pleasure" to mean a low degree of happiness?
Is there any single word available in English to mean that?
To add more detail to my question:
We have a common meaning for those two words as follows,
Bliss : The extreme happiness or pleasure can be felt by mind or heart. (Ecstasy)
"The other word" : The happiness in a low degree can be felt by body. In others words, it can be temporary.
The pleasure of seeing a favourite scene by the eyes
The pleasure of eating a favourite dishes by the tongue
The pleasure of listening a favourite song by the ears
There is also one other word I got from some websites, that is "eroticism" which means "sexual desire or excitement". But that's not the word I'm looking for.
I want a common word to describe "a low degree of happiness".
In our language, the word is formed like having a prefix (but not with hyphens) to mean the degrees of happiness,
