alphabetical letter و ذ وَ ذ : you say, سَارَ زَيْدٌ وَعْمْرٌو, using و as a conjunction; rather than وَعَمْرًا: and سِرْتُ وَزَيْدًا, using و as [a prep.] denoting concomitance; rather than وَزَيْدٌ. (I'Ak, p. 161.) ― -b2- مَا أُمِّى وَأُمُّهُ; and مَا أَنَا وَطَلَبُ الوَحْشِ: see أُمٌّ: and see another ex. in a verse cited voce حَلِمَ. In the Kur, ii. 121 some read وَإِِسْمٰعِيلُ; and others وإِِسْمٰعِيلَ. In مَا لَكَ وَزَيْدًا, the و denotes concomitance; What hast thou in common, or to do, with Zeyd? or it is for مَا لَكَ وَِلزَيٍْد. ― -b3- وَ in وهُوَ لَكَ: see حَمْدٌ. ― -b4- الوَاوُ لِمُطْلَقِ الجَمْعِ [The و denoting unrestricted conjunction, not necessarily implying simultaneousness nor relative order]. (I'Ak, p. 254.) وَا ذ generally means Alas! see وَا حَرَبَا, and the last verse voce حَتَّى. ― -b2- وَا زَيْدَاهَ Alas, Zeyd! ― -b3- وَا دَفْرَاهْ, and وَانِتْنَاهْ, Alas, stench! meaning Alas, what an abominable thing! See دَفْرٌ; and أَبٌ.
