Iranian culture concepts & terms into clear English Jul 7, 2008

Greetings.... salaam...

Please furnish some details of your interesting research.

Several books are available at some Persian bookstores in Los Angeles -- and also a few other good ones nearby in Orange County -- which discuss Iranian (Persian) cultural concepts and terms and their translation into clear English equivalents, especially taroof and related terms.

Hope this helps.

Khudaa Haafez.
