سَلْحٌ Excrement, ordure, or dung: (L, TA: [and evidently so accord. to the Mṣb; in my copy of which, and so, app., in the copy used by SM, immediately after the mention and explanation of the verb سَلَحَ, is added, وهو سلحة تسمية بالمصدر; plainly showing, by what follows سلحة, that this word is a mistranscription for سَلْحُهُ; and that the meaning is, “and it is its سَلْح, an instance of the inf. n. used as a subst. properly so called;” i. e., the dung of a bird is called its سَلْح; for the verb is there said to relate to a bird; though in truth it has a general application:]) or such as is thin, of any dung: (L, TA: [and this is the sense in which it is commonly known:]) andسُلَاحٌ↓ signifies [the same: i. e.] excrement, ordure, or dung, (Ṣ, A, MA, L, Ḳ, KL,) of a human being, (KL,) or of a bird (MA) [and of any animal]: or thin excrement or dung: (MA:) this latter is said to be the correct meaning in a marginal note in a copy of the Ṣ: (TA:) the pl. of the former is سُلُوحٌ and سُلْحَانٌ. (L, TA.) [رَمَى بِسَلْحِهِ frequently occurs in the Lexicons &c., meaning He cast forth his excrement, or ordure; or properly, in a thin state.] يَا سَلْحَ الغُرَابِ [lit. O dung of the crow], an expression used by ʼOmar, means يَا خَبِيثُ † [O foul, or filthy, man]. (Mgh.)

(TA.)
