1 دَكَّ دك , aor. دَكُ3َ , (S,) inf. n. دَكٌّ, (S, K,) He broke, or crushed, in any manner; or bruised, brayed, or pounded; i. e., beat with a thing so as to break or crush; i. q. دَقَّ. (S, K.) He threw down, pulled to pieces, or demolished. (K.) He broke a wall, and a mountain. (Lth, TA.) He beat a thing and broke it so as to lay it even with the ground. (S.) Hence the saying in the Kur [lxix. 14], فَدُكَّتَا دَكَّةً وَاحِدَةً, (S,) i. e. And they shall be beaten together with one beating, and the whole shall become fine dust: or they shall both be spread with one spreading, so as to become an even ground. (Bd.) [For] دَكَّ الأَرْضَ, (TA,) inf. n. as above, (K, TA,) means He made even the elevations and depressions of the earth, or ground. (K, TA.) أَذَا دُكَّتِ الأَرْضُ دَكًّا, in the Kur [lxxxix. 22], means When the earth shall be made level, without hills, (Ibn-'Arafeh, Bd,) and without mountains: or it means, shall become fine dust scattered: (Bd:) or shall be shaken so that every building thereon shall be demolished and non-existent. (Jel.) See also دَكٌّ below. ― -b2- دَكٌّ also signifies The spreading (كَبْس [for which كَنْس is erroneously put in the CK]) of earth, and making it even. (K.) When a roof, or flat house-top, has been spread with earth (كُبَِسَ بِالتُّرَابِ), one says, دُكَّ التُّرَابُ عَلَيْهِ [Earth was spread upon it]: and دَكَّ التُّرَابَ عَلَى المَيِّتِ, inf. n. دَكٌّ, means He poured earth upon the corpse. (AZ, AHn.) ― -b3- Also The filling up a well (K, TA) with earth; and so ↓ دَكْدَكَةٌ . (TA.) You say, دَكَكْتُ الرَّكِىَّ I filled up the wells with earth: (S:) and الرَّكِىَّدَكْدَكَ He filled up the wells with earth. (TA.) ― -b4- And دَكَّهُ signifies also He pushed him, or thrust him; like صَكَّهُ and لَكَّهُ. (As, TA.) ― -b5- [Hence,] دَكَّ جَارِيَتَهُ (tropical:) He (a man) distressed his young woman, or female slave, by throwing his weight upon her when desiring to compress her. (AA, TA. [See also رَكَّ.]) And دَكَّ الدَّابَّةَ بِالسَّيْرِ (tropical:) He distressed, or jaded, or fatigued, the beast by journeying. (TA.) And دُكَّ الرَّجُلُ, (S, K,) i. e. دَكَّتْهُ الحُمَّى, (AZ, S,) or دَكَّهُ المَرَضُ, (K,) meaning (tropical:) Fever, or disease, weakened the man: (TA:) or he became sick, or ill. (K.) ― -b6- And دَكٌّ also signifies The sending forth camels all together. (Ibn- 'Abbád, TA.) 2 دكّكهُ دكك دككه دككة دكة He mixed it; namely, colocynth with dates or some other thing. (O, L, K.) You say, دَكِّكُوا لَنَا Mix ye for us. (L, O.) [See مُدَكَّكٌ.] 6 تداكّ عَلَيْهِ القَوْمُ تداك عليه القوم The people pressed, or crowded, upon him. (TA.) It is said in a trad. of 'Alee, ثُمَّ تَدَاكَكْتُمْ عَلَىَّ تَدَاكُكَ الإِِبِلِ الهِيمِ عَلَى حِيَاضِهَا, i. e. Then ye pressed [upon me like the pressing of thirsty camels upon their wateringtroughs]. (TA.) And one says, تَدَاكَّتْ عَلَيْهِمُ الخَيْلُ The horses, or horsemen, pressed upon them. (TA.) 7 اندكّ أندى أندك اندك ناد ند ندا ندى ندي ٱندك It (a place) became levelled, its elevations and depressions being made even. (K.) ― -b2- It (a camel's hump) became spread upon the animal's sides, (TA,) or upon his back. (IDrd, TA.) ― -b3- It (sand) became compact. (TA.) R. Q. 1 دَكْدَكَ دكدك , inf. n. دَكْدَكَةٌ: see 1, in two places. ― -b2- One says of the stallion-camel when he covers, يُدَكْدِكُ النَّاقَةَ [app. meaning He distresses the she-camel by his weight: see دَكَّ الجَارِيَتَهُ, above]. (Ibn-'Abbád, TA.) R. Q. 2 تَدَكْدَكَثِ الجِبَالُ تدكدكث الجبال The mountains became دَكَّاوَات, i. e. hills of mould or clay. (S.) دَكٌّ دك An even, or a level, place; (K;) [and so ↓ أَدَكُّ , as is shown by an explanation of its fem. in this paragraph:] or land, or ground, broken, and made even: (S:) you say أَرْضٌ دَكٌّ: (Akh, S:) pl. دُكُوكٌ. (S, K.) Hence, in the Kur [vii. 139 and xviii. 98], جَعَلَهُ دَكًّا, (Akh, S, TA,) i. e. [He made it, in the former instance, and shall make it, in the latter instance,] even, or level, (AZ, Az, Ibn-'Arafeh,) without any hill: (Ibn- 'Arafeh: [this addition relating to the former instance:]) or crumbled: (Ksh, * Bd:) or, accord. to Akh, دَكًّا may be here an inf. n.; as though the meaning were ↓ دَكَّهُ دَكًّا : [see 1:] or it may be elliptical, meaning جَعَلَهُ ذَا دَكٍّ: another reading is ↓ جَعَلَهُ دَكَّآءَ , (S,) meaning in the former instance a hill rising from the ground like the دَكَّةَ: (Ksh:) or meaning جَعَلَهُ أَرْضًا دَكَّآءَ, (S,) i. e. He made it even, or level, ground; (Ksh, Bd;) because the word جَبَل [to which دكّآء virtually relates] is masc. (S.) ― -b2- Also, [as a subst.,] Even, or level, sand; and so ↓ دَكَّةٌ : pl. [of either, agreeably with analogy,] دِكَاكٌ. (K.) ― -b3- And A [mound, or hill, of dust or earth, such as is called] تَلّ: (K:) or the like of a تَلّ: (L:) in some of the copies of the K, التكّ is erroneously put for التّل. (TA.) دُكٌّ دك A low mountain: (S, K:) or an elevated, or overlooking, hill of mould, or clay, in which is somewhat of ruggedness: (As, TA:) pl. دِكَكَةٌ; (As, S, K;) and دِكَكٌ [app. another, though irregular, pl. of the same,] is said to signify قِيرَان [i. e. small isolated mountains, or knolls of mountains, &c., (see قَارَةٌ,)] breaking, or crumbling, down: or disintegrated [hills, or mountains, such as are called] هِضَاب. (TA.) ― -b2- [See also أَدَكُّ, of which it is a pl.] -A2- Also Strong and bulky. (Ibn-'Abbád, K.) دَكَّةٌ دك دكه دكة A certain thing, (S,) [i. e.] an elevated place, (Msb,) a flat-topped structure, (K,) upon which one sits; (S, Msb, K;) i. q. مَسْطَبَةٌ [a kind of wide bench, of stone or brick &c., generally built against a wall]: (Msb:) pronounced by the vulgar ↓ دِكَّةٌ [and commonly applied by them to a long seat of wood]: (TA:) and ↓ دُكَّانٌ signifies the same; (S, Msb, K;) but accord. to some, this belongs to art. دكن [q. v.]: (S, Msb, TA:) the pl. of the former is دِكَكٌ, like as the pl. of قَصْعَةٌ is قِصَعٌ: (Msb:) and the pl. of ↓ دُكَّانٌ is دَكَاكِينُ. (TA.) [For another modern application, see مَحْفِلٌ.] ― -b2- See also دَكٌّ. دِكَّةٌ دك دكه دكة : see the next preceding paragraph. ― -b2- [It is also vulgarly used for تِكَّةٌ, q. v.] دَكَكٌ دك دكك دكة The state of having no hump, or no prominence of the hump, in a camel. (K.) [See أَدَكُّ.] دُكُكٌ دك دكك دكة [a pl. of which the sing. is not mentioned] She-camels having their humps broken, bruised, or crushed. (TA.) دُكَكَةٌ دكك دككه دككة دكة A thing [meaning food] made of هَبِيد [i. e. colocynths, or colocynth-seeds,] and flour, when flour is scarce. (Ibn-'Abbád, TA.)

(S, K.) دَكَّآءُ دكآء , fem. of أَدَكُّ [q. v.], used as a subst., (TA,) A hill of mould or clay, (As, S, M, K,) not rugged, (As, M, K,) nor amounting to a mountain: (TA:) or the pl. signifies natural [mounds, or hills, of dust or earth, such as are called] تِلَال: (TA:) the pl. is دَكَّاوَاتٌ, (As, S, M, K,) because it is used as a subst.: (TA:) or it has no sing.: (K:) ISd says, this is what the lexicologists say; but in my opinion the sing. is دَكَّآءُ. (TA.) دُكَّانٌ دكان : see دَكَّةٌ, in two places: and see also art. دكن. دَكْدَكٌ دكدك and دِكْدِكٌ: see what next follows. دَكْدَاكٌ دكداك (As, S, K) and ↓ دَكْدَكٌ and ↓ دِكْدِكٌ (K) Sand that is compact, and cleaving to the ground, (As, S, K,) not elevated, (S,) or not much elevated: (As, TA:) or sand containing dust or earth, compacted together: (AHn, TA:) or sand pressed, and even, or level: or land in which is ruggedness: (K:) or a low, or depressed, and even, or level, tract of land: (TA:) n. un. of the first [and app. of each of the others] with ة: (ISh, T in art. ربو:) pl. دَكَادِيكُ and دَكَادِكُ.

You say also أَكَمَةٌ دَكَّآءُ, meaning A hill wide [and app. flat, or nearly so,] in its top: (TA:) or an expanded hill: (Msb:) pl. دَكَّاوَاتٌ, which is extr. in this case, because دكّآء is here an epithet. (TA.) And دُكٌّ, [its regular pl.,] applied to sands, Even and compact. (AHn, M in art. ذلف.) ― -b2- [Hence,] A horse contracted [in make] and broad in the back; (S;) or a horse broad in the back, (Ks, A 'Obeyd, Mgh, K, TA,) and short (Ks, A 'Obeyd, Mgh, TA) therein; (TA;) of the sort called بَرَاذِين; (A 'Obeyd, TA:) pl. دُكٌّ.

(IB.) مِدَكٌ مد مدك (tropical:) A strong man, that treads the ground vehemently: (S, TA:) or strong to work; (K;) and the fem., with ة, is applied in this latter sense to a female slave.

(AHn, K.) ― -b3- مَدْكُوكٌ applied to a horse, Having no prominence of his حَجَبَة [or crest of the hip or haunch]; (K;) and so مَدْلُوكٌ.
