↓أَبْنَآءُ عُرْجَ in a verse of Aboo-Muk'it ElAsadee, the poet makes the latter word, which is a pl., imperfectly decl. because he means التَّوْحِيد وَالعُرْجَة; as though he regarded it as a sing.

IAạr), one says
↓هٰذِهِ عُرَاجُ, meaning This is the female hyena [not hyenas]; the latter word imperfectly decl. (O.)
