English term or phrase: Saluki
Greetings,

I quote Wiki here:
“The Saluki also known as Persian Greyhound (Persian: سلوکی, Arabic: سلوقی) is perhaps the oldest known breed of domesticated dog.”

I find no trace of this word سلوکی – how is it pronounced? (If it exists, of course.)

Otherwise, I guess we’ll just have to use ‘تازی ایرانی’... would that be satisfactory?

All the best, and many thanks,

Simon
