Works Beginning DH

How many words of 6 letters or less can you think of which start with the letters DH? Just the singular versions, because they all take an S except the one which ends with a Y

There is one word beginning with the letters DH that I have seen played a few times. It is an oriental boat, I am sure you know the one. There is another one that is an Indian wild dog which makes the occasional appearance as well. In a game the other day I played one of the other words that start that way and was quite relieved that it was correct because it looked odd and I wasn't sure.

So I have had a look and there are 22 words, quite a lot of which I did not know. They are all either Indian or Arabic in origin so when I list the meanings I will ignore that piece of information and you can just assume it is something which comes from that part of the world
