غثو and غثى

1 غَثَا الوَادِى ذ , (Msb, K,) aor. يَغْثُو, (Msb,) inf. n. غَثْوٌ; (Msb, K;) and غَثَى, aor. يَغْثِى, inf. n. غَثْيٌ; (K;) the latter mentioned by IJ, but the former is that which is [commonly] known to the lexicologists; (TA;) The valley, or water-course, was, or became, full of غُثَآء [q. v.]: (Msb: [and the like is indicated in the K:]) or had in a abundance of camels' or similar dung (بَعْر) and leaves and reeds or canes. (TA.) ― -b2- غَثَا اللَّحْمُ, inf. n. غَثْوٌ, The flesh-meat was bad by reason of its leanness. (IKtt, TA.) ― -b3- غَثَتِ النَّفْسُ, (S, Msb, K,) aor. تَغْثِى, (S, Msb,) inf. n. غَثْىٌ and غَثَيَانٌ; (S, Msb, K;) and, accord. to Lth, غَثِيَت, aor. تَغْثَى, inf. n. غَثًا, but Az says that this is post-classical; (TA;) i. q. خَبُثَت; (S, K, TA;) and جَاشَت; (TA;) i. e. [The soul, or stomach, heaved; or became agitated by a tendency to vomit; or] became agitated so that the person nearly vomited, by reason of a mixture pouring forth to the mouth of the stomach: (Msb, TA:) or, as some say, غَثَيَانٌ signifies a flowing of the mouth which sometimes, or often, occasions vomiting. (TA.) ― -b4- غَثَتِ السَّمَآءُ بِالسَّحَابِ, (K, TA,) aor. تَغْثِى, (TA,) The sky was, or became, clouded, or covered with clouds: (K, TA:) or began to be so. (TA.) -A2- غَثَا السَّيْلُ المَرْتَعَ, aor. يَغْثُوهُ, inf. n. غَثْوٌ; thus accord. to J, [in the S,] but accord. to the K and ISd, غَثَى, mentioned in art. غثى; and in [some of] the copies of the K, المَرْبَعَ is erroneously put for المَرْتَعَ; (TA;) The torrent drew [or washed] together the pasture, and deprived it of its sweetness; as also ↓ اغثاهُ . (S, K.) ― -b2- And hence, by way of comparison, (TA,) غَثَى الكَلَامَ, aor. يَغْثِيهِ; (K, TA;) and غَثِيَهُ, aor. يَغْثَاهُ; (K, * TA;) the former verb of the class of رَمَى, and the latter of the class of رَضِىَ; inf. n. غَثْىٌ; (TA;) (tropical:) He mixed, or put together confusedly, the speech, or language. (K, * TA.) ― -b3- And غَثَى المَالَ, and النَّاسَ, He beat the cattle, and the people, and dealt blows among them. (K, * TA.) ― -b4- غَثِيَتِ الأَرْضُ بِالنَّبَاتِ The land became abundant in herbage: (K, TA:) or began to be so. (TA.) ― -b5- And غَثِىَ شَعْرُهُ, inf. n. غَثًى, His hair became matted, or compacted together: mentioned in art. غثى by IKtt: perhaps a dial. var. of عَثِىَ, with the unpointed ع; mentioned before. (TA.) 4 أَ1ْ2َ3َ see the preceding paragraph, latter half. غُثَآءٌ ذ (S, Msb, K) and غُثَّآءٌ (S, K) The rubbish, or small rubbish, or particles of things, or refuse, and scum, and rotten leaves mixed with the scum, (Zj, S, * Msb, * K, TA,) borne upon the surface (S, Msb, TA) of a torrent: (Zj, S, Msb, K, TA:) or dried-up [or decayed] and broken pieces [or leaves and stalks] of herbage, that are seen upon a torrent: so in the Kur lxxxvii. 5: [see أَحْوَى in art. حو:] (TA:) pl. أَغْثَآءٌ. (S, TA.) ― -b2- [Hence,] one says, مَالُهُ غُثَآءٌ وَعَمَلُهُ هَبَآءٌ وَسَعْيُهُ خَفَآءٌ (assumed tropical:) [His property is as rubbish borne by a torrent (see Kur xxiii. 43), and his work is as motes that are seen in the rays of the sun (see Kur xxv. 25), and his labour, or earning, is a thing that is unapparent]. (TA.) ― -b3- [Hence, also,] غُثَآءُ النَّاسِ (assumed tropical:) The low, or vile, and the refuse, of mankind. (TA.) الأَغْثَى ذ The lion. (K.)
