* وَقَدْ يَتَزَيَّا بِالهَوَى غَيْرُ أَهْلِهِ *
* وَيَسْتَصْحِبُ الإِنْسَانُ مَنْ لَا يُلَائِمُهْ *

[And verily, or sometimes, or often, one who is not entitled to it] assumes the guise of love; and the man asks to be his companion him who is not suited to him: (W p. 374:) his disciple Ibn-Jinnee, however, objected to him his saying يتزيّا, and expressed his opinion that the correct word is يَتَزَوَّى; and El-Mutanebbee admitted that he did not know the former word in any [classical] poetry, nor in any lexicological book, but asserted the verb in use to be only تَزَيَّا: (MF, TA:) in the M it is said that IJ held تَزَيَّا to be originally تَزَوْيَا, and the و to be changed into ى because quiescent, and incorporated into the ى preceded by it.

(Ṣ, Ḳ.) They say, كَمْ فِى الزَّوَايَا مِنَ الخَبَايَا [How many hidden things are there in the corners!]. (TA.)
