نعب نعت نعث


1. (نعت)

نَعَتَ, aor. ـَ, inf. n. نَعْتٌ; andانتعت↓; He described, or characterized, or designated, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) a thing; (Ṣ;) syn. وَصَفَ: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) or he described a thing by mentioning what was in it, or what it possessed; whereas, in the وَصْف of a thing one may exaggerate: (L:) [he distinguished a person or a thing by an epithet: and hence, he qualified a substantive by an epithet: and he used a word as an epithet] or he described a thing by mentioning what was in it that was good, or goodly; not with reference to what was bad. or foul, or ugly; unless by a straining of the meaning one say نَعْتٌ سَوْءٌ; whereas وَصَفَ is said with respect to what is good, or goodly and what is bad, or foul, or ugly: (IAth:) or نَعَتَ signifies he described by mentioning the make, or form, or other outward characteristic, as tallness and shortness; and وَصَفَ respects action, as beating: or, accord. to Th, نَعَتَ signifies he described by mentioning something in some particular place in the body, such as lameness; whereas وَصَفَ is used with respect to what is common to the whole, as greatness, and generosity; therefore God is an object of وَصْف, but not of نَعْت. (TA.)
