سبر سبرت سبط


Q. 1سَبْرَتَ

He begged; and became lowly, humble, or submissive; or affected to be like the مَسَاكِين [or destitute, or needy, &c.]; syn. قَنَعَ; (Ḳ, TA; [omitted in the CK, and in my MṢ. copy of the Ḳ erroneously written قَنِعَ;]) and تَمَسْكَنَ. (TA.)

سُبْرُتٌ

: see سُبْرُوتٌ.

سِبْرَاتٌ

: see the next paragraph, in two places.

سُبْرُوتٌ

A desert, syn. قَفْرٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) or a plain, syn. قَاعٌ, (M,) in which is no herbage: (M, Ḳ:) or weak land: (TA:) and أَرْضٌ سُبْرُوتٌ and سِبْرِيتٌ (Aṣ, Lḥ, M) and سِبْرَاتٌ (M) Land in which is no herbage; (M;) or land in which is nothing: (Aṣ, Lḥ, M:) pl. سَبَارِيتُ and سَبَارٍ, the latter anomalous, mentioned by Lḥ: (M:) accord. to A'Obeyd, the pl. سَبَارِيتُ signifies deserts, or waterless deserts, (فَلَوَاتٌ,) in which is nothing: and accord. to Aṣ, land [or lands] in which nothing grows: (TA:) and one says also أَرْضٌ سَبَارِيتُ, (M, Ḳ,) a phrase of the same class as ثَوْبٌ أَخْلَاقٌ, (Ḳ,) as though the sing. سُبْرُوتٌ or سِبْرِيتٌ were applied to every portion thereof. (M.)
Hence, (TA,) applied to a man, (AZ, Ṣ, TA,) Needy, in want, indigent, (AZ, Aṣ, Ṣ, M, Ḳ, TA,) poor, (AZ, Aṣ, Ḳ, TA,) possessing little, (M, TA,) or, as some say, possessing nothing; (Ṣ, * M, TA;) and سِبْرِيتٌ signifies the same, (AZ, Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) as also سِبْرَاتٌ, and سُبْرُتٌ: (M, Ḳ:) also bankrupt, or insolvent; syn. مُفْلِسٌ: (TA in explanation of the first [but equally applying to all]:) the epithet applied to a woman is سُبْرُوتَةٌ and سِبْرِيتَةٌ; (AZ, Ṣ;) the latter of which is applied to a man [app. in intensive sense, agreeably with analogy,] as well as to a woman: (M:) and the pl. is سَبَارِيتُ, applied to men and to women. (AZ, Ṣ.)
[Hence, also,] applied to a youth, or young man, Beardless; or having no hair upon the sides of his face. (M, Ḳ, TA. [In the Ḳ, this signification is immediately followed by the mention of the pls. سَبَارِيتُ and سَبَارٍ.])
And Little, or small, in quantity or number; (Ṣ, M, Ḳ;) paltry, or inconsiderable: (Ḳ:) applied to a thing, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) and (Ṣ) to property, or cattle. (Ṣ, M.)
Also Tall, or long. (M, TA.)
And A skilful, or an expert, guide, well acquainted with the lands. (TA.) It is mentioned by Sb, who says that it is of measure فُعْلُولٌ, like زُنْبُورٌ and عُصْفُورٌ; and most hold him to be right: but some of the authors on inflection assert that it is of the measure فُعْلُوتٌ, from سَبَرْتُ الشَّىْءَ meaning “ I tried, proved, or tested, the thing, or proved it by experiment or experience; ” and that the ت is added to give intensiveness to the signification; which several deny: (MF, TA:) سُبْرُورٌ, however, is mentioned in the Ḳ, in art. سبر, as meaning “ poor, ” and land “ in which is no herbage. ” (TA.)

سِبْرِيتٌ

and سِبْرِيتَةٌ: see the next preceding paragraph, in three places.

سَنْبَرِيتٌ

A man (TA) of evil disposition or nature. (Ḳ, TA: but omitted in the CK.)

مُسَبْرَتٌ

Bald, or bare of hair. (Ḳ, TA: but omitted in the CK.)
