↓حِرْحٌ, (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) as is shown by the form of its broken pl., (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb,) and by that of its dim.; for in the formation of the broken pl. and of the dim., a word is restored to its original state: the final ح in the original is elided, and ر is put in its stead, and incorporated into the medial radical letter; and sometimes the word is used without any letter of compensation: thus are formed حِرٌّ and حِرٌ: (Mṣb:) the pl. is أَحْرَاحٌ, (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) its only broken pl., (TA,) and حِرُونَ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) which latter is like لِدُونَ and مِئُونَ, pls. of defective nouns [لِدَةٌ and مِئَةٌ]: (Ṣ:) dim.
