Beautiful and poetic, no?

The Farsi word "ham" means "same," "too," "shared." It also is used as a common prefix, and helps make some of the most beautiful words in my opinion:


- HamKaar, literally, "shared work," means colleague.


- HamSaayeh, literally "shared shadow," means neighbor.


- HamRaah, literally "shared path," means to accompany.


- HamDast, literally "shared hand," means to partner.


- HamShireh, literally "shared milk," means sister.


And my absolute favorite:


- HamSar, literally "shared head," means partner (wife, husband).


Beautiful and poetic, no?
