(O) meaning ‡ And it, i. e. war, will fret [or grind or crush] you, as the mill with its skin put beneath it, upon which the flour falls, frets [or grinds] the grain; and it, i. e. war, will conceive two years, one after the other; then bring forth, and give birth to twins: he makes war's destruction of them to be like the mill's grinding of the grain, and the various evils that are engendered from war to be like children.

اعتركوا, (Ṣ, O,) or اعتركوا فِى المَعْرَكَةِ, (Ḳ, TA,) [andتعاركوا↓, mentioned by Freytag, and agreeable with analogy, but I do not find any authority for it,] They pressed, straitened, or crowded, one another, (Ṣ, O, TA,) and rubbed, or rubbed and pressed, one another, (TA,) or strove together, and fought one another, (Ḳ, TA,) in the place of fight, or battle; (Ṣ, O, Ḳ, TA;) and فِى الخُصُومَةِ [in altercation].

(O.) [See also حَازٌّ, in art. حز.]
[Hence, app.,] ذُو عَرْكَيْنِ, as used by a poet, [the dual, it seems, being put for the sing. for the sake of the rhyme, as it ends a verse,] is a metaphorical term for The vulva of a woman; the عَرْك in its primary sense being in the camel. (TA.)

عَرَكٌ Fishermen; (AA, Ṣ, MA, O, Ḳ;) as alsoعَرَكَةٌ↓; (MA; [but this I do not find elsewhere;]) and عُرُوكٌ: (O, Ḳ:) one of whom is called عَرَكِىٌّ↓, (AA, Ṣ, MA, O, Ḳ,) meaning a fisherman who holds in his hand an iron implement having five prongs: (MA:) عَرَكٌ andعَرَكِىٌّ↓ being like عَرَبٌ and عَرَبِىٌّ: (AA, Ṣ, O:) [i. e. عَرَكِىٌّ is the n. un.:] accord. to the Ḳ, عَرَكٌ and عُرُوكٌ are pls. of عَرَكِىٌّ; but IAth says that عُرُوكٌ is pl. of عَرَكٌ: (TA:) hence عَرَكٌ is used as meaning sailors, or mariners, (AA, Ṣ, O, Ḳ,) because they fish, not as being [properly] a name for them: (AA, Ṣ, O:) Zuheyr says,
* تَغْشَى الحُدَاةُ بِهِمْ حُرَّ الكَثِيبِ كَمَا ** يُغْشِى السَّفَائِنَ مَوْجَ اللُّجَّةِ العَرَكُ *
[The camel-drivers cover with them the middle of the elevated expanse of sand like as the seamen cause the waves of the deep to cover the ships]: but AO related this verse otherwise, saying مَوْجُ, in the nom. case, and making العَرَكُ to be an epithet applied to the موج as signifying المُتَلَاطِم [as though the meaning were, like as the colliding waves of the deep cover the ships with their surf]. (Ṣ, O.)

(Ḳ.)
عَرِكٌ A man who throws down, or prostrates, his antagonists much, or often; syn. صِرِّيعٌ; (Ṣ, O;) in the Ḳ and in some of the copies of the Ṣ صَرِيع, like أَمِير; [which is app. a mistranscription;] (TA;) strong, or vehement, (Ṣ,* O,* Ḳ, TA,) in striving, contending, or conflicting, (Ḳ, TA,) and in might, courage, valour, or prowess, (TA,) in war, or battle, (Ḳ, TA,) and in altercation; (TA;) as alsoمُعَارِكٌ↓: (Ḳ, TA:) pl. of the former عَرِكُونَ.

رَمْلٌ عَرِكٌ andمُعْرَوْرِكٌ↓ Sand, or sands, intermingling; (IDrd, O, Ḳ;) as alsoعَرِيكٌ↓, (L, TA,) which last epithet is erroneously applied in the Ḳ to the word رَجُلٌ instead of رَمْلٌ, as is also in one instance مُعْرَوْرِكٌ↓ [in the CK in this latter instance written مُعْرَوْرَكٌ]. (TA.)
عَرْكَةٌ as meaning A war, or battle, is postclassical. (TA.)

عَرِيكَةٌ A camel's hump: or the remainder thereof: (Ḳ:) or عَرِيكَةُ السَّنَامِ signifies what remains of the hump: (ISk, Ṣ, O:) so called because the purchaser feels that part (يَعْرُكُهُ) to know the fatness and strength [of the animal]: (TA:) pl. عَرَائِكُ; which is said by some to signify the humps with the backs.
