غمر غمز غمس
غَمَزَهُ, (Ṣ, A, Ḳ,) or غَمَزَهُ بِيَدِهِ, (Mṣb,) aor. ـِ, (Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf. n. غَمْزٌ, (TA,) He felt him, (namely, a ram,) to know if he were fat: (Ṣ, A, Mṣb, Ḳ:) and غَمَزَهَا he put his hand upon her (a camel's) back, to see how fat she was. (TA.)
Hence, (Mṣb,) غَمَزَهُ بِيَدِهِ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) aor. ـِ, (Ḳ,) inf. n. غَمْزٌ, (A, Ḳ,) He pressed, or squeezed, it, [with his hand,] namely, a limb, (A, Ḳ, TA,) and a man's back. (TA.) So in a trad. of ʼOmar: دَخَلَ عَلَيْهِ وَعِنْدَهُ غُلَيْمٌ يَغْمِزُ ظَهْرَهُ [He went in to him, and with him was a little boy pressing, or squeezing, or kneading, his back]. (TA.) And in a trad. respecting the ablution termed الغُسْل, it is said, اِغْمِزِى قُرُونَكِ, meaning Press thou, or squeeze thou, the locks of thy hair, in washing. (TA.) You also say, غَمَزَ الثِّقَافُ القَنَاةَ The straightening-instrument pinched and pressed the spear. (A,* Mgh, TA.*) A poet (namely Ziyád El-Aajam, TA) says,
* وَكُنْتُ إِذَا غَمَزْتُ قَنَاةَ قَوْمٍ ** كَسَرْتُ كُعُوبَهَا أَوْ تَسْتَقِيمَا *
[And I used, when I pinched and pressed the spear of a people, to break its knots, or internodal portions, unless it became straight]. (Ṣ, TA. It is a prov., respecting which see remarks in art. او.)
غَمَزَ, (A, Mṣb,) and غَمَزَهُ, (Ṣ, Mgh, Ḳ,) aor. ـِ, (Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf. n. غَمْزٌ, (Mṣb, TA,) ‡ He made a sign, (A, Mṣb,) and he made a sign to him, (Mgh, Ḳ,*) with the eye, (Ṣ, A, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) or eyebrow, (A, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) or eyelid [by winking]. (Ḳ.) So in the saying, in a trad., غَمَزَنِى عَلِىٌّ أَنْ قُلْ نَعَمْ ‡ '4lee made a sign to me with the eye, or eyebrow, meaning, Say thou Yes. (Mgh.) The people of the West say, غَمَزَهُ فُلَانٌ بِفُلَانٍ, meaning, ‡ Such a one blinked towards such a one, to instigate him against him, or in order that he should have recourse to him for protection or the like, or seek aid of him. (Mgh.)
Hence, الغَمْزُ بِالنَّاسِ: (Ṣ:) you say, غَمَزَ بِالرَّجُلِ, aor. ـِ, (Ḳ,) inf. n. غَمْزٌ, (TA,) ‡ He calumniated, or slandered, the man. (Ḳ.) [See also 4.]
You say also, غُمِزَتْ شَهَادَتَهُ [† His testimony was suspected (see مَغْمُوزٌ), or impugned]. (TA in art. زور.)
غَمَزَتِ الدَّابَّةُ, (Ḳ,) or غَمَزَ فِى مَشْيِهِ, (Mṣb,) or مِنْ رِجْلِهِ, (Ṣ,) aor. ـِ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf. n. غَمْزٌ, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) † The beast limped, or it halted, with its hind leg; had a slight lameness thereof: (Ḳ,* TA:) or he had what resembled عَرَج [or natural lameness] in his gait: (Mṣb:) or, as IḲṭṭ says, غَمَزَتِ الدَّابَّةُ بِرِجْلِهَا the beast gave an indication of a limping, or halting, or slight lameness, in its hind leg: whence it appears that this signification may be tropical. (TA.)
غَمَزَ said of a disease, or of a vice, or fault, of a man, It appeared. (AA, Ḳ.)
[This verb is mentioned by Golius as syn. with عايب, a verb for which I find no authority: and Freytag renders it “Vitii arguit,” and refers to a passage in Ḥar (p. 427 of the see. ed.) where (like as is done by Golius) المُغامِز and المُعايِب, as syn., are erroneously put for المَغامِز and المَعايِب.]
أَغْمَزَتْ She (a camel) had fat, (O, Ḳ,) or a little fat, (ISd, IḲṭṭ, TA,) in her hump. (ISd, IḲṭṭ, O, Ḳ.) Hence the epithet غَمُوزٌ↓, applied to her. (TA.)
اغمز فِى فُلَانٍ ‡ He blamed, or found fault with, such a one; attributed or imputed to him, or charged him with, or accused him of, a vice, or fault; (Ṣ, IḲṭṭ, Ḳ, TA;) deemed him weak; (TA;) lessened his rank, or dignity: (Ṣ, IḲṭṭ, Ḳ,* TA:) he found in him that for which he should be deemed weak: (A, TA:) andاغتمزهُ↓ he impugned his character; blamed him; censured him; or spoke against him. (Ḳ.) You say,فَعَلْتُ شَيْئًا فٱغْتَمَزَهُ↓ فُلَانٌ ‡ I did a thing, and such a one impugned my character, or found in it that by which my character was impugned. (Ṣ, TA.) Andسَمِعَ مِنِّى كَلِمَةً فَٱغْتَمَزَهَا↓ فِى عَقْلِهِ ‡ He heard from me a saying, and deemed it weak: (A, TA:) and in like manner, أَغْمَزَ فِيهَا found in it that for which it was to be deemed weak. (TA.)
أَغْمَزَنِى الحَرُّ ‡ The heat remitted, or abated, to me, so that I became emboldened to encounter it, and went upon the road: (AA, ISk, Ṣ, IḲṭṭ, Ḳ,* TA:) Az says غَمَزَنِى↓ الحَرُّ, on the authority of AA: (TA:) and AA mentioned اغمرنى الحرّ in this sense, but afterwards doubted, and said, I think that it is with زاى. (TA in art. غمر.)
And أَغْمَزَ † He (a man) became gentle, so that others were emboldened against him. (IḲṭṭ, TA.)
And أَغْمَزَ [for which أَغْمَزَه is erroneously put in the CK] He acquired cattle such as are termed غَمَز [q. v.]: (O, Ḳ, TA:) like أَقْمَزَ. (O.)
[This verb is said by Freytag to have a signification belonging to تَغَمَّرَ.]
تغامزوا They made signs, one to another, with their eyes, (Ṣ, A, Ḳ, B,) or with the eyebrow, (A,) or hand, indicating something blameable or faulty. (B.) In this sense it is expl. as used in the Ḳur lxxxiii. 30. (Ṣ, B.)

And A weak man: (Ṣ, O, Ḳ:) like قَمَزٌ: pl. أَغْمَازٌ, like أَقْمَازٌ of قَمَزٌ. (TA.)
غَمُوزٌ A she-camel of which one doubts whether she be fat or not and therefore feels the hump: (AʼObeyd, Ṣ, Ḳ:) pl. غُمْزٌ [or غُمُزٌ, or both?]. (TA.) See 4, first sentence.
غَمِيزٌ: see the next paragraph, in two places.
غَمِيزَةٌ ‡ A thing for which one's character is to be impugned; for which one is to be blamed, censured, or spoken against; a vice, or fault; (Ṣ, A, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ;) as alsoغَمِيزٌ↓ (TA) andمَغْمَزٌ↓ (Ṣ, A, Mgh, Ḳ) orمَغْمَزَةٌ↓: (Mṣb:) and weakness in work, and impotence of mind, (TA,) and ignorance: (T, TA:) the pl. ofمَغْمَزٌ↓ is مَغَامِزُ, (TA,) syn. with مَعَايِبُ. (Ṣ.) You say, لَيْسَ فِيهِ غَمِيزَةٌ, (Ṣ, A, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) andغَمِيزٌ↓, (TA,) andمَغْمَزٌ↓, (A, Mgh, Ḳ,) orمَغْمَزَةٌ↓, (Mṣb,) ‡ There is not in him anything for which his character is to be impugned; or for which he is to be blamed; &c.: (Ṣ, A, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ:) or there is not in it anything for which it is to be coveted: (Ḳ:) orمَا فِيهِ مَغْمَزٌ↓ has both of the above-mentioned significations. (A.) Andفِى فُلَانَةَ مَغَامِزُ↓ جَمَّةٌ ‡ In such a woman are many vices, or faults. (A.) [See مَغْمَزٌ, below.]

غَمَّازٌ One who blames, or finds fault with, others, much, or habitually. (TA in art. همز.)
غَامِزٌ [meaning Limping, or halting, &c., and having a limping, or halting, &c.,] is like ظَالِعٌ: sometimes used as a possessive noun; and [therefore] one does not say غَامِزَةٌ. (O and TA in art. ظلع.)
مَغْمَزٌ [should by rule be مَغْمِزٌ: its primary signification is A place of feeling, to know if an animal be fat: hence, a place of pressing or squeezing a limb &c.: and a place of pinching and pressing a spear, to straighten it].
نُكْتَةٌ لَامَغْمَزَ لِقَنَاتِهَا وَلَا مَقْرَعَ لِصَفَاتِهَا ‡ [lit. A nice or subtile saying, the spear of which has no place where it requires to be pinched and pressed to straiten it, and the rock of which has no rough place requiring to be beaten, or for the rock of which there is no beating,] means, † that has no crookedness: مقرع is an inf. n., or means “a place of beating,” and صفاة is “a rock;” and the above-mentioned use of these two words is borrowed from the phrase قَرَعَ صَفَاتَهُ, meaning ‡ “he impugned his character; blamed, or censured, him; or spoke against him.” (Mgh.)
