لمّظهُ, inf. n. تَلْمِيظٌ; (TA;) orلَمَظَهُ↓; (M as quoted in the TT [being there written without teshdeed; and both seem to be correct;]) He gave him something to taste; he fed him with something whereby to content or divert, him [so as to allay the craving of his stomach] before the morning-meal; syn. ذَوَّقَهُ and لَمَّجَهُ, (M, TA,) both of which are alike. (TA.) You say also, لَمِّظْ فُلَانًا لُمَاظَةً [Give thou to such a one, to eat,] something which he may taste time after time, or after eating which he may move about his tongue in his mouth as though seeking leisurely and gradually after some remains thereof between his teeth. (T.)

المظهُ He put the water upon the edge of his lips, (M,) or upon his lips, or lip. (Ḳ, accord. to different copies.)
