Tehrangeles
 n.— «With neon signs in Persian decorating the window of the Woodland Hills Market—”Kabob” glowing in bright red, “Iranian Market” in pea green—this corner grocery store could just as well be in Tehran as in the heart of “Tehrangeles,” as Iranians everywhere call their largest exile community.» —“Exiles in ‘Tehrangeles’ Are Split on on Iran” by Neil MacFarquhar in Los Angeles, California New York Times May 9, 2006.
