This paper brings to light additional lexical material with regard to several items, primarily cultural terms, discussed already in the relevant literature. The material was recorded during recent field-work in various parts of the Iranian-speaking oikumene, including present-day Iran, western parts of Afghanistan, and Central Anatolia. The list of terms examined in this essay are: “bare-foot and naked”, “step-child”, “yawning”, “snow, sleet, and dew”, “threshing-floor”, “mortar and pestle”, “fork for winnowing grain”, “plough-handle”, “clothing, underwear, and shirt”, and “Rhubarb (Rheam L.) and Purslane (Portulaca L.)”.
