عَصًا

عَصًا i. q. عُودٌ [as meaning A staff, or stick, or rod]: (Ḳ:) originally عَصَوٌ, and accordingly its dual is as below: said to be thus called because the fingers and hand are put together upon it [to grasp it], from the saying عَصَوْتُ القَوْمَ “I collected together the people, or party;” as related by Aṣ from some one or more of the Basrees: (TA:) of the fem. gender: (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ:) it is said in a prov., العَصَا مِنَ العُصَيَّةِ↓ [lit. The staff is from the little staff; the dim. having the affix ة because it is the dim. of a fem. n.]; (Ṣ;) [or] العَصَا in this prov. is the name of a mare of Jedheemeh [mentioned voce ضُلٌّ], and العُصَيَّة is that of her dam; meaning that part of the thing, or affair, is from part; (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA;) and said when one is likened to his father; or meaning that the big thing is in its commencement small: (TA: [see also Freytag's Arab. Prov. i. 17:]) it is not allowable to say عَصَآء; nor to affix ة: (Aṣ, TA:) one says, هٰذِهِ عَصَاىَ أَتَوَكَّأُ عَلَيْهَا [This is my staff; I support, or stay, myself upon it]: Fr says that the first incorrect speech heard in El-'Irák was the saying, هٰذِهِ عَصَاتِى: (Ṣ:) the dual is عَصَوَانِ: (Ṣ, Mṣb:) and the pl. [of mult.] is عُصِىٌّ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) [originally عُصُووٌ,] of the measure فُعُولٌ, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) and عِصِىٌّ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) in which the ع is with kesr because of the kesrah following it, and [of pauc.] أَعْصٍ (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ) and أَعْصَآءٌ, (Ḳ,) or this last is agreeable with analogy, but has not been transmitted, (ISk, Mṣb,) and is disallowed by Sb, who says that عُِصِىٌّ was used in its stead. (TA.)
