(TA.) ― -b7- وَقَبَ, aor. يَقِبُ, inf. n. وَقْبٌ It (a thing) entered: (S:) but it is said in a marginal note in a copy of the S, that the inf. n. is correctly وُقُوبٌ, because the verb is intrans.: accord. to some, it signifies he, or it, entered into a وَقْبٌ, q. v.; and in the K, وَقْبٌ is given as the inf. n. of the verb in this sense.
