what does the word "nishpur " mean? What language is it?
Nishpur or Nishapur is a city in northeast Iran, formerly Persia, on the Silk Road and close to Afghanistan, and close to turquoise mines. The language is Persian. It is named after Shapur I. Wikipedia says the name presumably stems from *n?v-??p?r "fair, good city of Shapur."[
That is correct. Unfortunately, I was referring to a Yiddish word that my Mother used. The Yiddish Book Center gave me an answer. Thanks anyway.
