(Msb.) 2 خمّنهُ خمن خمنه خمننه خمنة , (Msb, K,) inf. n. تَخْمِينٌ; (S, Msb;) and ↓ خَمَنَهُ , (Msb, K,) aor. خَمِنَ inf. n. خَمْنٌ; (Msb;) He spoke of it conjecturally, (S, Msb, K,) and opining; (TA;) or surmising: (K:) or he formed a surmise respecting it; or an opinion. (Msb.) IDrd says, I think it to be post-classical: (TA:) AHát says that it is of Persian origin, (Msb, TA,) arabicized, (TA,) from خمانا, [app. a mistranscription for گُمَانَا, or گُمَانَهْ, or گُمَانْ,] applied to “ an opinion, ” and “ a conjecture, ” or “ conjectural saying. ” (Msb, TA.) ― -b2- تَخْمِينٌ is also syn. with تَحْرِيرٌ. (So in the TA. [But this, I doubt not, is a mistranscription for تَحْزِيزٌ, which, though perhaps post-classical, signifies The act of conjecturing.]) خَمَنٌ خمن خمنن Stink. (K.)
