عظلم عظم عظو
عَظُمَ, [aor. ـُ,] inf. n. عِظَمٌ (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ) and عَظَامَةٌ, (Mṣb, Ḳ,) accord. to El-Iṣbahánee, primarily signifies He was, or became, great in his bone: then metaphorically said of anything كَبِير [or great], whether an object of sense or of intel-lect, a substance or an accident: (TA:) i. q. كَبُرَ, (Ṣ, TA,) said of a thing [as meaning it was, or became, great, big, or large], (Ṣ, Mṣb, TA,) in length and breadth and thickness: (TA:) [and in like manner, metaphorically, said of an object of intellect; meaning it was, or became, great in estimation or rank or dignity; and thus also said of a man: or it imports more than كَبُرَ; signifying it was, or became, great in comparison with other things of its kind; huge, enormous, or vast; and in a similar sense it is said of a man; and in an incomparably higher sense, of God: (see عَظِيمٌ, below:)] andاعظم↓ said of an affair, or event, signifies [like عَظُمَ] it became عَظِيم. (TA.) عِظَمٌ is the contr. of صِغَرٌ. (Ḳ.)
عَظُمَ عِنْدَهُ, and عَظُمَ عَلَيْهِ: see 6, in three places: and see also 4. And مَا يَعْظُمُنِى [which is similar in meaning to ما يَعْظُمُ عَلَىَّ if not a mistranscription for ما يُعْظِمُنِى]: see 4.
In the case of expressing wonder, one says, عُظْمَ البَطْنُ بَطْنُكَ [How great is the belly, thy belly!], contracting عَظُمَ, and transferring the vowel of its middle letter to [the place of] its first; and thus one does in the case of that which denotes praise or blame, and of whatever [verb] may be well used in the manner of نِعْمَ, and بِئْسَ: but what may not be thus used does not admit of the transferring, though it may be contracted; so that you may say, حَسُنَ الوَجْهُ وَجْهُكَ and حَسْنَ الوَجْهُ وَجْهُكَ and حُسْنَ الوَجْهُ وَجْهُكَ, but not قَدْ حُسْنَ الوَجْهُ وَجْهُكَ.
