(De'vID, 11/16/2014 < qepHom 2014):  {tIQ} in {ra’Duch tIQ} "equilateral triangle" is used for triangles only. For other polygons with equal sides/angles, the word {HoS} is used instead. For example:  {vagh reD mey’ HoS} "regular pentagon".  A {letbaQ HoS} "regular rectangle", of course, can also be called a {meyrI’} "square".
