Persian Word of the Day- tak khor

Today's word of the day is a suggestion from a wonderful loyal reader in Australia. 

تک خور / tak khor (slang word)



Tak means single/only, and khor comes from khordan, to eat. Essentially, tak khor is a person who secretly does something and doesn't share the love. For example, you've gone into business with someone, and you decide to split the profits 50-50. Suddenly you find out your partner has taken all the money and left you with nothing. S/he is a tak khor who has done tak khori, the act of doing this.

Thanks for this wonderful suggestion! I love getting them, so please keep them coming!
