alphabetical letter ذ ذ The ninth letter of the alphabet; called ذَالٌ: it is one of the letters termed مَجْهُورَة [or vocal, i. e. pronounced with the voice, and not with the breath only]: and of the letters termed لِثَوِيَّة [or gingival], which are ث and ذ and ظ; wherefore it is substituted for ث in تَلَعْذَمَ for تَلَعْثَمَ; and it is said to be substituted for the unpointed د in فَشَرِّذْ بِهِمْ, [as some read] in the Kur [viii. 59, for فَشَرِّدْ بهم]. (TA.) -A2- [As a numeral, it denotes Seven hundred.]
