See 3.

8اِتَّكَأَ

He sat in a firm, or settled, manner: and he sat leaning upon one of his sides: (Mṣb, in art. تكأ:) the vulgar know it only in the latter sense: but it signifies he leaned, rested, or stayed, his back, or his side, against, or upon, a thing: and he leaned, rested, or stayed, himself in any manner, upon a thing. (IAth, in Mṣb, art. وكأ.)
اِتَّكَأَ عَلَى شَىْءٍ, (Ṣ,) and توكّأ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) and اوكأ; (Ḳ;) and تَكِئَ, [in which ت is substituted for و,] aor. يَتْكَأُ, inf. n. تَكْءٌ; (Lth;) and وَكَأَ; (CK;) He leaned, or reclined, upon a thing; supported, propped, or stayed, himself upon it. (Ḳ.)
اِتَّكَأَ He reclined upon a cushion, &c. (TA.)
اِتَّكَأَ He made for him [i. e., app., for himself,] a thing upon which to lean, or recline: (CK, and a MṢ. copy of the Ḳ:) or he made him to be a thing upon which to lean, or recline. (TA.) [The latter seems to be wrong, unless the verb be read أَتْكَأَ.]
اِتَّكَأْنَا عِنْدَ فُلَانٍ (tropical:) We ate a repast with, or at the abode of, such a one. (TA.)
اِتَّكَأَتْ (MF) and تَوَكَّأَتْ (Ḳ) She (a camel) was taken with the pains of labour, and cried out. (Ḳ.) Accord. to Lth, تَوَكُّؤُ النَّاقَةِ signifies تصلّفها عند مخاضها: (TA:) [but it is evident that the right reading is تصلّقها; and the sense agreeable with the above explanation].

تُكَأَةٌ

مُتَّكِئٌ

act. part. n. of 8.
لَا آكُلُ مُتَّكِئًا I (said Moḥammad) eat not sitting in a firm, or settled, posture, cross-legged, or in such other similar manner as is adapted for much eating: for he used to eat sitting upon his hams, with his shanks erect, so as to be ready to rise. The meaning is not [only] “ inclining on one side, ” as the vulgar among students imagine. (Ḳ.)

مُتَّكَأ

A place in which one reclines: (Ṣ:) a chamber, or sitting-room. (Akh, Ṣ.)
That upon which one leans, or reclines, in eating, drinking, or talking. (Zj.)
(tropical:) Food, or a repast: so called because people used to recline when they sat to eat: but the Muslims are forbidden to do so. [See مُتَّكِئٌ.] It is said to have this last meaning in the Ḳur. xii. 31. (TA.)
