A word in the Armenian language which means foreign, foreigner, someone outside of the community or someone who is not Armenian, and just plain stranger.

Pronunciation: oh dahr (sounds like radar)

This word has a lot of significance when applied to marriage. It's often used when referring to a marriage between an Armenian and non-Armenian. In this context, the word itself does not have any negative connotation, but the interracial marriage itself can be viewed differently within the community. Reactions can vary from rejection to tolerance to complete acceptance.
