لمح

1 لَمَحَهُ ذ , (S,) or لَمَحَ إِِلَيْهِ, aor. لَمَحَ , (L, Msb, K), inf. n. لَمْحٌ; (Msb;) and ↓ المح , (L, K,) or ↓ المحهُ , (S, Msb,) and ↓ التمحهُ ; (S;) He glanced, or took a light, or slight, look, at him or it; (S;) like لَمَأَهُ; (Nh;) snatched a sight of him or it unawares: (L, Msb, K;) or, accord. to some, لَمَحَ signifies he looked; and ↓ المحهُ , he made him to look; but the former explanation is the more correct: or لَمَحَ is only said of one looking from a distance. (L.) ― -b2- لَمَحْتُهُ بِالبَصَرِ I directed (صَوَّبْتُ) my sight towards him. (Msb.) ― -b3- لَمَحَ البَصَرُ The sight extended to a thing. (Msb.) ― -b4- لَمَحَ, aor. لَمَحَ , inf. n. لَمْحٌ (S, K) and لَمَحَانٌ and تَلْمَاحٌ, (K,) It (lightning, and a star,) shone; gleamed; glistened; i. q. لَمَعَ. (S, K.) 3 لَامَحَهُ ذ , inf. n. مُلَامَحَةٌ, [He glanced at him, or viewed him lightly, or slightly, or snatched sights of him unawares, reciprocally]. (A.) 4 المحهُ ذ He made him to glance, or to take a light, or slight, look; expl. by جَعَلَهُ يَلْمَحَ, (K,) and جَعَلَهُ مِمَّنْ يَلْمَحُ. (TA.) ― -b2- See 1. ― -b3- أَلْمَحَتِ المَرْأَةُ مِنْ وَجْهِهَا, (inf. n. إِِلْمَاحٌ, TA,) The woman allowed herself [or her face] to be glanced at, or to be viewed lightly, or slightly: so does a beautiful woman, displaying, and then concealing, her beauties. (T, K.) 8 أَلْتُمِحَ بَصَرُهُ ذ His sight was taken away. (K.) ― -b2- See 1. فُلَانٌ سَمْحٌ لَمْحٌ ذ , and ↓ سَمِيحٌ لَمِيحٌ : see art. سمح. [لَمْحٌ and لَمِيحٌ in these cases seem to be merely imitative sequents.] ― -b2- لَأُرِيَنَّكَ لَمْحًا بَاصِرًا (tropical:) I will assuredly show thee a manifest, or an evident, thing, matter, or affair. (S, A, K.) [See also art. بصر.] لَمْحَةٌ ذ , subst. from لَمَحَ, (S, L,) A glance, or light or slight look. (L.) ― -b2- لَمْحَةٌ A shining, gleaming, or glistening, of lightning. (S.) ― -b3- فِى فُلَانٍ لَمْحَةٌ مِنْ أَبِيهِ In such a one is a likeness, or point of resemblance, to his father: then they said مِنْ ابيهمَلامِحُ , (S,) signifying likenessess, or points of resemblance; forming an extr. pl., (S, K,) as though from another word than لَمْحَةٌ: (S:) they did not say مَلْمَحَةٌ. (TA.) ― -b4- ↓ مَلَامِحُ also signifies What appear of the beauties and defects of the face (K) of a human being: or the parts thereof that are glanced at, or viewed lightly or quickly.

(IAar, T, K, [in the CK, زَكِيَّة].) لَامِحٌ ذ and ↓ لَمُوحٌ and ↓ لَمَّاحٌ Lightning, and a star, shining; gleaming; glistening: (K:) [but the second and third are intensive epithets, signifying shining much; &c.] ― -b2- ↓ أَبْيَضُ لَمَّاحٌ (tropical:) Intensely white. (A.) ― -b3- لَامِحُ عِطْفَيْهِ A self-admiring man, who looks at his sides. (M, F.) أَلْمَحِىٌّ ذ A man (TA) who glances much, or frequently takes light, or slight looks.
