hook·ah

 (ho͝ok′ə, ho͞o′kə)
n.
1. A pipe traditionally used for smoking flavored tobacco in which tobacco is placed in a bowl and heated with burning charcoal, producing smoke that is drawn through an urn of water that cools it and then into a long tube with an attached mouthpiece. In some modern versions, the charcoal-heated bowl is replaced with a battery-powered vaporizer containing a liquid mixture similar to that used in an e-cigarette. Also called hubble-bubble, narghile, shisha.
2. An e-cigarette or a vaporizer pen. Also called hookah pen.

[Urdu ḥuqqa, small box, hookah water urn, from Persian, from Arabic, small box or jar, from ḥaqqa, to be suitable; see ḥqq in Semitic roots.]
