سُنُجٌ

سُنُجٌ The عُنَّاب [or jujube]. (IAạr, Ḳ.)


سَنْجَةٌ

سَنْجَةٌ, as also صَنْجَةٌ, but the former is the more chaste, (T, O, Mṣb, Ḳ,) accord to Fr, (O,) because and ج do not both occur in any [genuine] Arabic word, (Mṣb,) or the former only is allowable accord. to Fr, (T, Mṣb,) or, accord. to ISk, (T, O, Mṣb, and Ṣ in art. صنج,) and IḲt, (T, Mṣb,) the latter only is allowable; (T, O, Mṣb, and Ṣ and O in art. صنج;) an arabicized word, (O, Mṣb, and Ṣ and A and Ḳ in art. صنج,) from [the Pers.] سنك [or سَنْغْ, as meaning “a weight”]; (O;) [or rather from the Pers. سَنْجَهْ meaning “a balance” and “a weight;”] i. q. مِيزَانٌ [A balance]: (A in art. صنج:) [in the present day, applied to a steel-yard: and also, more commonly, (agreeably with the explanation of صَنْجَةٌ in the MA,) to a weight of a balance; which last seems to be intended in the Ṣ and O and Mṣb and Ḳ &c. by the expressions سَنْجَةُ المِيزَانِ and صَنْجَتُهُ, unless these expressions be instances of what is termed إِضَافَةُ الشَّىْءِ إِلَى نَفْسِهِ (i. e. the prefixing a noun, governing the gen. case, to another noun signifying the same thing), which I think unlikely:] pl. سِنَجٌ (A, Mṣb) and سَنَجَاتٌ. (Mṣb.) One says, اِتَّزَنَ منّى بِالسَّنْجَة الرَّاجِحَةِ [He received by weight from me with the inclining balance, or with the preponderating weight], and بِالسِّنَجِ الوَافِيَةِ [with the full weights]. (A.) And a rájiz says,

* كَأَنَّهَا سَنْجَةُ أَلْفٍ رَاجِحَهْ *

[As though it, or she, were the weight of a thousand, preponderating]: or, as some relate it, صَنْجَةٌ. (O.)


سُنْجَةٌ

سُنْجَةٌ i. q. رُقْطَةٌ [i. e. Blackness mixed with speckles of white: or the reverse: or speckles of white, and of black, and of red, and of yellow, in an animal]: (AA, O, Ḳ:) pl. سُنَجٌ, (O, Ḳ, TA, in the CK سُنْجٌ,) like حُجَرٌ (Ḳ, TA, in the CK like حُجْرٌ,) as pl. of حُجْرَةٌ. (TA.)


سِنَاجٌ

سِنَاجٌ The mark, or effect, of the سِرَاج [i. e. lamp, or its lighted wick], (A, O, Ḳ,) upon the wall. (O, Ḳ, TA.) One says, لَابُدَّ لِلسِّرَاجِ مِنَ السِّنَاجِ [The lamp, or its lighted wick, cannot but have the mark, or effect, thereof upon the wall]. (A.)

مُسَنَّجٌ

بُرْدٌ مُسَنَّجٌ A [garment of the kind called] بُرْد striped. (O, Ḳ.) [SM thinks that it may be a mistranscription for مُسَبَّجٌ, meaning “wide,” applied to a كِسَآء: but this I think improbable.]
