Pronunciation: [xuǎng]. Meaning: that feeling of contentedness you get after learning a word for which you'd been wanting to find out the Chinese for ages. Alternatively, the feeling of contentedness you get after learning a word that has no real equivalent in your mother tongue, but now you know about its existence you wonder how you ever survived without it.

[xu-] as in [xué], [-ǎng] as in [shuǎng].

 

I want to say it's 学爽切, but I don't know what that would imply about the phonetic quality of the “u”.
