, said of a woman, She walked with an elegant and a proud and self-conceited gait, with an affected inclining of the body from side to side. (Mṣb.) [See also 5.]
And, said of the bird called فَاخِتَة, It [cooed, or] uttered a cry or sound. (Ḳ.)
And فَخَتَ He lied, or uttered a falsehood. (A, TA. [See فَاخِتَةٌ.])

5تفخّت

He walked in the manner of the bird called فَاخِتَة: thus in the Ḳ: but in most of the lexicons تَفَخَّتَتْ: (TA:) i. e. she (a woman) walked as walks the فَاخِتَة: (A:) [or,] accord. to Lth, [in the ʼEyn,] signifying مشت مجنبحة: (TA: in the O, مَشَتْ مجنحه; and in the margin thereof, مُجَنْبِخَةً: [the right reading is مَشَتْ مُجْتَنِحَةً; thus in the JK, a lexicon founded upon the ʼEyn:] thought by him to be from the walking of the bird called فَاخِتَة: (O, * TA:) he means, she strode in her walking, and held out her arms apart from [her sides beneath] her armpits. (TA.)
And He wondered, syn. تَعَجَّبَ, (O, Ḳ, TA,) and said, How good, or goodly, is he, or it! (O, TA.) And it is said of a man as signifying تعجّب فِى مِشْيَتِهِ [app. meaning He showed عُجْب, i. e. self-admiration, &c., in his gait: but I do not find this signification assigned to تعجّب]. (TA.)
And He affected lying; or lied purposely; syn. تَكَذَّبَ. (A, TA.)

7انفخت

, said of a roof, It became perforated. (O, Ḳ.)

فَخْتٌ

The light of the moon; moonlight: (Ṣ, A, O, Ḳ:) or the light of the moon when it first appears: and hence [as some say] the derivation of فَاخِتَةٌ [as the name of a certain bird], because of its colour: (Mṣb: [see, however, what follows:]) you say, جَلَسْنَا فِى الفَخْتِ [as though meaning We sat in the moonlight]: (A ʼObeyd, Ṣ, O:) but Sh says, I have not heard الفِخْت except in this instance; and Aboo-Is-hák states that some one of the lexicologists says, I know not whether it be a name of the light of the moon or of its darkness: Abu-l-ʼAbbás says that the meaning [in the saying above mentioned] is, in the shade of the moon [i. e. in the shade of a moonlight-night; and to this the colour of the فَاخِتَة may be likened]. (TA.)
Also The [snare, or trap, &c., called] فَخّ, (Ḳ, TA,) of the sportsman: (TA:) or [a thing] nearly resembling the فَخّ. (O.)
And Holes, or perforations, of a round form, in a roof. (O, Ḳ.)

فَاخِتَةٌ

A certain well-known bird; (Ḳ;) of those having neck-rings [or collars]; (Ṣ, O;) a species of pigeon, marked with a neck-ring: (TA:) accord. to Ibn-El-Jawáleeḳee, (IB, TA,) the name is derived from الفَخْتُ, (IB, Mṣb, TA,) meaning “ the light of the moon, ” (IB, TA,) or “ the light of the moon when it first appears; ” because of its colour: (Mṣb:) [hence, and from what will be found stated voce قُمْرِىٌّ, it seems to be a species of collared turtle-dove, of a dull white colour, marked with a black neck-ring:] or, as some say, the word is a part. n. from فَخَتَتْ signifying as expl. in the first sentence of this art.: (Mṣb:) the pl. is فَوَاخِتُ. (Ṣ, O, Mṣb.) أَكْذَبُ مِنْ فَاخِتَةٍ [More lying than a fákhiteh] is a prov.; because the cry of the فاختة resembles هٰذَا أَوَانُ الرُّطَبِ [This is the season of the fresh ripe dates]; and this it utters when the spadix of the palmtree has not yet come forth. (Meyd. [See also Freytag's Arab. Prov. ii. 383.])
