    Greetings,

    If John punches Fred in the head, Fred may say, “I'll get even with you!”

    Then, after Fred has punched John in the head in turn, Fred may say, “We’re even!”

    What are these two expressions in Colloquial Persian, please?

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Simon

    PS For “We’re even!”, “We’re quits!” is also used.

    I'll get even with you! = تلافيشو سرت در ميارم؛ تلافي مي‌كنم
    We’re even! = ير به ير شديم؛ زدي ضربتي، ضربتي نوش كن؛ زدي، خوردي!؛ اينم به تلافي اون

    Thank you so much, dear Morteza.

    Please, how do you pronounce ير? Also, how do you pronounce نوش?

    You are welcome as always my dear friend.
    Yer = مساوي
    ير به ير شدن = بي‌حساب شدن، نه بدهكار بودن و نه طلبكار بودن
