1. (أكل)

أَكَلَهُ, [aor. ـُ,] inf. n. أَكْلٌ and مَأْكَلٌ, [He ate it,] (Ṣ, Ḳ,) namely, food. (Ṣ.) Er-Rummánee says that أَكْلٌ properly signifies The swallowing food after chewing it; so that the swallowing of pebbles is not properly thus termed: (Mṣb:) or, accord. to Ibn-El-Kemál, the conveying, or transmitting, to the belly what may be chewed, whether [the thing be] chewed or not; so that it does not apply to milk, nor to سَوِيق: and as to the saying of the poet,

* مِنَ الآكِلِينَ المَآءَ ظُلْمًا فَمَا أَرَى *
* يَنَالُونَ خَيْرًا بَعْدَ أَكْلِهِمُ المَآءَ *

[Of the eaters of what they purchase with the price of water, wrongfully, I do not see any attain good after their eating of what they have purchased with the price of the water,] he means a people who used to sell water and purchase with the price thereof what they would eat: (TA:) [for you say, أَكَلَ كَذَا as meaning † He ate the price of such a thing: see another ex. voce إِكَافٌ; and another voce ثَدْىٌ.]
