Thanks brother Unity. Saam Sadeghi is kind of passionate about etymologies, so I decided it would be better to make it separate and dedicate it to all kinds of words that we want to learn. Looking forward to see this topic active. - Pors

Durud bar hama!

I was wondering what people in Afghanistan call "microwave"? I use "mavjdaan" (mavjdon - Tajik accent) and I heard several other people using "mavjdaan" for "microwave". Is there any other version of microwave in Parsi?

Sipos,

DalerDokht,

Do people from Afghanistan living abroad call it "myroowev" or people inside of Afghanistan? I know Iranians living abroad call it "mycrofer" probably it's the same in Iran.

You are very welcome, Saam-e arjmand! This topic was for you and your etymologies! Looking forward to new discoveries of words and their origins.

By the way, can't remember Persian word for "qhalam" (pen). I vaguely remember DukhtariPulegun, an old member of this forum, mentioned an old Persian word for "ghalam", but can't quite recall it. Do you know?

We should adopt the attitude that every day is a day for learning and it continues until we're six feet under. Every day is an education.

Unity,

It's interesting, because not many people know it, at least whom I know. Do you use them or people in Afghanistan use them, or is it just a common knowledge in Afghanistan?

Thanks,
