Abstract: 

In this short paper the author sets out to investigate the etymology of the Persian word tarke, which means a slender young bough, a switch. The author suggests that the word is made up of two elements: tar and rake. And he sets out to document each one. There are many instances in which tar is used and the author finds that in each case the meaning is young, fresh or succulent. As for rake, the author's search in various dictionaries yields the following results:
rāke =a young branch in Western Gilān;rīkā =a boy, offspring in Mazandaran;
rake = any fresh growth or blossom-bearing branch in Borhān Qāte'. And so tar and rake have combined and in the course of time the two elements have fused together to yield the present-day tarke.
