Fr.: Colombe   

The Dove. A small → constellation in the Southern Hemisphere just south to → Canis Major and → Lepus. Abbreviation: Col; genitive: Columbae.

Kabutar "pigeon," Mid.Pers. kabôtar, from kabôd "grey-blue; pigeon," cf. Skt. kapota- "a dove, pigeon; the grey color of a pigeon."

column
  ستون   
sotun (#)

Fr.: colonne   

CCD detector: Series of pixels arranged under one another.

Column, from O.Fr. columpne, from L. columna "pillar," collateral form of columen "top, summit," from PIE *kel- "to project."

Sotun, from Mid.Pers. stun, from O.Pers. stênâ "column," Av. stuna-, Skt. sthuna- "column."

column density
  چگالی ِ ستون   
cagâli-ye sotun

Fr.: densité de colonne   

Density of the interstellar matter lying between an object and the Earth in a cylinder with a unity base.

column; → density.

colure
  کلدم   
koldom

Fr.: colure   

Either of two great circles of the celestial sphere that passes through the poles and meets the ecliptic at either the solstice points (the solstitial colure) or the equinox points (the equinoctial colure).

From L. colurus, from Gk. kolouros "dock-tailed," from kol(os) "docked" + -ouros "-tailed," from oura "tail;" so called because the lower part is permanently hidden beneath the horizon.

Koldom, from Mod.Pers. kol "docked, short," most probably cognate with the Gk. term, as above, + dom(b) "tail," Av. duma- "tail." Recorded in classical dictionaries, kol has several variants in a large number of dialects: kola, kalta, kel, kelma, koc, kall, kor, kul in Gilaki, Tâleši, Lori, Malâyeri, Hamedâni, Qâeni, and others, cf. Av. kaurva- "bald, docked," kaurvôduma- "with a bald tail," kaurvôgaoša- "with bald ears."

com-, col-, con-, cor-, co-
  هم-، هن-، ها-، هَ-   
ham- (#), han- (#), hâ- (#), ha- (#)

Fr.: com-, col-, con-, cor-, co-   

Prefix denoting "together; with; joint; jointly". It is sometimes used for intensification as in complete, complain, convince.

M.E., from O.L., classical L. form cum "together, together with," Gk. koinos "common," from PIE *kom- "beside, near, by, with."

O.Pers./Av. ham-, Skt. sam-, sa-; also O.Pers./Av. hama- "one and the same," Skt. sama-, Gk. homos-; originally identical with PIE numeral *sam- "one," from *som-. The Av. hąm- (nasal a) appears in various forms: ham-, han- (before gutturals, palatals, dentals) and also həm-, hən-, ha- (Bartholomae, 1772). Variants in Pers. ha- as in (Anâraki) ha-bend, → connect, and (Kurd.) hasûn "to whet, sharpen," and hâ- as in hâ-dâdan, hâ-gereftan, see Dehxodâ.

Berenices genitive of Berenice, a queen of Egypt, wife of Ptolemy III, who sacrificed her hair to Aphrodite, begging her husband's victory in the war with the Assyrians, who had killed his sister. While the story is an old one, the constellation is relatively new, being introduced by Tycho Brahe (1546-1601).

Coma cluster
  خوشه‌ی ِ گیسو   
xuše-ye Gisu (#)

Fr.: amas de Coma   

The nearest rich cluster of galaxies which contains more than a thousand known galaxies, is about 20 million light-years in diameter, and lies about 280 million light-years away in the → constellation  → Coma Berenices. Also known as Abell 1656.

combination
  میازش   
miyâzeš

combine
  میازیدن   
miyâzidan

Fr.: combiner   

To cause to join in a close union or whole; unite.

From M.Fr. combiner, from L.L. combinare "to unite, yoke together," from L. → com- "together" + bini "two by two," adv. from bi- "two, twice," cf. Av. biš "twice," bi-, dva- "two," Skt. dvi- "two," Gk. di-, O.E. twi-.

Miyâzidan, infinitive from miyâz-, variant of miz- in â-miz-, âmixtan "to mix," âmizé, âmižé "mixture," âmiq "mixture; copulation;" Mid.Pers. âmêz-, âmêxtan (Proto-Iranian *āmis- ,*āmiz-; PIE *meik- "to mix"); cf. Av. mayas- "to mix;" Skt. miks- "to mix, mingle," miśr- "to mix, blend, combine;" Gk. misgein "to mix, mingle;" L. miscere (p.p. mixtus) "to mix;" O.C.S. meso, mesiti "to mix," Rus. meshat, Lith. maisau "to mix, mingle."
