Chess & Go terms

Question : Is there an equivalent word at Go for "zugzwang", "zeitnot" and all other chess terms ? .. Actually there are many more Go terms, so what would be the equivalent words at chess ? .. It could be interesting to make such parallels between the games to point their differences.

Chess & Go Terms

I needed to look up these terms as I'm not familiar with chess, but no... there's no direct equivalent. Zugzwang might be "time to resign" in Go, but typically tenuki (playing elsewhere) can get you out of situations. "Joseki" might be on-track (a fixed sequence of play), but still isn't very close. Zeitnot is simply "overtime" in Go. Go is played on a longer time frame. Although time pressure can exist there's no special word for it.

A zugzwang may occur before a draw (maybe even a win ? :)) .. Is there an equivalent for a fork at Go ?

Miai ?

Miai / Fork ? .. I'm not sure.

Go fork?

I think "double atari" would be the term for a fork in Go.
