(Mṣb: [but this is a strange explanation; and probably corrupted by a copyist: it seems that, instead of “to repeat them,” we should read “and repeated them.”])

(TA.) You say also, رجّع الحَمَامُ فِى غِنَائِهِ † [The pigeons quavered in their singing, or cooing]; as alsoاسترجع↓. (TA.) And رجّع البَعِيرُ فِى شِقْشِقَتِهِ † The camel brayed, or reiterated his voice, in his شقشقة [or bursa faucium]. (TA.)
