Definition: Taarradhin (pronounced: tah-rah-deen); Arabic; noun
1. Implies a solution that is a definite win for everyone involved.
Why I love this word:
Arabic has no word for the English word compromise in the sense of reaching an arrangement via struggle and disagreement. Rather, they have a much happier concept, taarradhin, exists in Arabic. It implies a happy solution for everyone, an "I win, you win." It's a way of resolving a problem without anyone losing face. How lovely and gracious is that?
