Persian words with no English equivalent.

Can people please list as many words as possible with no English equivalent and say their meaning. 

 

My friend Neda said there was a word for a place where you and you friends commonly hang out (I forgot the word). 

 

Another one was the protectiveness you should feel for the women in your life - gheirat غیرت

 

Thankyou

You can hardly find a word with no equivalent! But here I do my best:

1. Diizi (دیزی)

It's both the name of a certain kind of pot, and the food which is prepared and served in it. Just use google images to find an idea.

2. Tokhmi (تخمی )

It means crappy, snd literally it means "like testicles". It's safely used only among people that you know.
