لَاحُوسٌ: see مِلْحَسٌ.
مَلْحَسٌ is a noun of place; [signifying A place of licking; &c;] as well as an inf. n.: and in both cases it has مَلَاحِسُ for pl. (IJ.) You say, تَرَكْتُهُ بِمَلَا حِسِ البَقَرِ, (Ṣ, A, Ḳ,) or بِمَلَاحِسِ البَقَرِ أَوْلَادَهَا, (TA,) meaning, ‡ I left him in the places where the wild cows lick their young ones (Ṣ, ISd, A, Ḳ) from the membranes in which they are born: (ISd, TA:) or in a desert place, (Ṣ,) or in a desert, or waterless desert, (ISd, A, TA,) so that it was not known where he was; (Ṣ;) because the wild cows bring forth only in the deserts: (ISd, TA:) the former is like the saying بِمَبَاحِثِ البَقَرِ; (Ṣ;) and is that which ISd holds to be the right: (TA:) in the latter, ملاحس is an inf. n., in the pl. form, which is strange; because it governs اولاد in the accus. case; and a prefixed noun [مَوَاضِع] is understood before it: (IJ:) some relate the saying differently, thus, بِمَلْحَسِ البَقَرِ أَوْلَادَهَا, meaning, بِمَوْضِعِ مَلْحَسِ البَقَرِ أَوْلَادَهَا [in the place of the cows' licking their young ones]; (Ḳ;) because [some hold that] an inf. n. of the measure مَفْعَلٌ has no pl. (TA.)
مُلْحِسٌ: see مِلْحَسٌ.
مِلْحَسٌ ‡ Greedy; as alsoلَحْوَس↓ (Ḳ) andلَاحُوسٌ↓ andمُلْحِسٌ↓: (TA:) and one who takes everything that he can. (Ḳ:) or a greedy man, who takes everything that he can: (A:) one who takes everything that appears to him: (TA:) [originally, a lick-dish:] and [in like manner] لَحُوسٌ↓ ‡ a man who seeks after sweets, like the fly. (A, Ḳ.)
