This section is intended to come handy as a quick reference for everyday Persian vocabulary, and probably for frequent use by the users of this website. In all of the categories I have tried to include words that are more likely to be encountered in ordinary Persian texts and dialogues. This explains why the vocabulary section ignores the distinction between a wasp and a bee but puts an emphasis on the difference between someone's mother's sister and the person's father's sister (both called "aunt" in English).
