Lakota, "Sioux" Indian.

For instance, in their language, children are reffered to as "little-heart people."

Now that's a romantic language.

I only speak 3 languages but of the three, modern Hebrew conveys attitudes and postures better than English and French. There are a range of words that just don't have equivalents in English.
Most of those words come from other languages and different dialects of Arabic.

i've actually wondered about something similar to this quite often.

i would think that one could make an argument that emotions and ideas are different and hence there could be a more effective language for each.

could one answer be as simple as that language with the greatest number of words?

Chinese. There are words in Chinese for emotions you didn't even know you had.
