verb form: 4.(signification - B4)

And hence الإِضَافَةُ as a conventional term of the grammarians; because the first [of two nouns in the case to which it applies] is adjoined to the second: (Mṣb:) [for] إِضَافَةُ الاِسْمِ إِلَى الاِسْمِ is [The prefixing the noun to the noun so that the former governs the latter in the gen. case] as when you say غُلَامُ زَيْدٍ; in which instance, غلام is termed مُضَافٌ↓, and زيد is termed مُضَافٌ↓ إِلَيْهِ: and this is done for the purpose of particularizing or appropriating, and of making known or definite: therefore the إِضَافَة of a thing to itself [i. e. the prefixing a noun in this manner to one identical therewith in meaning] is not allowable, because a thing does not make known, or definite, itself; (Ṣ;) unless by an ellipsis, as when you say حَقُّ اليَقِينِ for حَقُّ الشَّىْءِ اليَقِينِ; or, accord. to Fr, the Arabs used to do so because of the difference of the two words themselves. (Ṣ voce جَامِعٌ.) [الإِضَافَةُ is also often used as meaning The state of being prefixed in the manner explained above; or the connection of a noun so prefixed with its complement. The various kinds of إِضَافَة are sufficiently explained in the grammars of De Sacy and others: they are not proper subjects of a lexicon, though much is said respecting them in the O, and more in the Mṣb.]

verb form: 4.(signification - B5)

[Hence also, بِالإِضَافَةِ إِلَى كَذَا meaning In comparison with (lit. to), or in relation to, (like بِالنِّسْبَةِ إِلَى,) such a thing; as though in juxtaposition to it: a phrase of frequent occurrence: see an ex. in Bḍ ii. 6.]

أَضَفْتُهُ (inf. n. إِضَافَةٌ, Mṣb) andضَيَّفْتُهُ↓ (inf. n. تَضْيِيفٌ, O) both signify the same, (Ṣ, M, O, Mṣb, Ḳ,) from الضِّيَافَةُ; (O;) i. e. both signify I made him a guest, or lodged him, or gave him refuge or asylum, syn. أَنْزَلْتُهُ, (Ṣ, M, Mṣb,) with me, as a ضَيْف [or guest], (Ṣ,) and entertained him: (Ṣ, M, Mṣb:) أَضَافُوهُ andضَيَّفُوهُ↓ both signify أَنْزَلُوهُ: (Mgh:) accord. to Th, أَضَفْتُهُ signifies I lodged him at my abode as a ضَيْف: and I gave him (i. e. one in fear) protection, or refuge or asylum: (Mṣb:) andضَيَّفْتُهُ↓ is also expl. as meaning I fed him: andضيّفهُ↓ as meaning he made him to be in the condition of أَضْيَاف [or guests].
