صمت صمج صمخ


صَمَجٌ

[Lamps of the kind called] قَنَادِيلُ [pl. of قِنْدِيلٌ]: one of which is called صَمَجَةٌ: (Ṣ, Ḳ: [in the Ḳ, the former word is called pl. of the latter; but it is a coll. gen. n:]) an Arabic word, an exception to the rule that and ج cannot both occur in a genuine Arabic word: (TA:) or of Greek origin (رُومِىٌّ), arabicized: (Ṣ:) EshShemmákh says,
* وَالنَّجْمُ مِثْلُ الصَّمَجِ الرُّومِيَّاتْ *
[And the asterism, meaning the Pleiades, like the Greek lamps]: (Ṣ, MF:) but this does not show the word to be Greek, as the epithet may be added for the purpose of restriction. (MF.)
