أُجُمٌ A fortress; (Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ;) like أُطُمٌ: (Mgh:) pl. آجَامٌ. (Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ.) الأُجُمُ [is the name of] A fortress (Ṣ, Ḳ) in El-Medeeneh, (Ḳ,) built of stones by the people of that city: and Yaạḳoob says that أُجُمٌ signifies any square, roofed, house. (Ṣ, Ṣgh.) Imra-el-Ḳeys says, [describing a vehement rain,]

* وَتَيْمَآءَ لَمْ يَتْرُكْ بِهَا جِذْعَ نَخْلَةٍ *
* وَلَا أُجُمَّا إِلَّا مَشِيدًا بِجَنْدَلِ *

[And Teymà, (a town so called,) it left not therein a trunk of a palm-tree, nor a square, roofed, house, unless raised high with stones: but in the Calc. ed. of the Mo' allakát, (p. 54,) for أُجُمَّا, we find أُطُمَّا, which has the same meaning].

أَجَمَةٌ A thicket, wood, or forest; a collection, (Mgh, Mṣb,) or an abundant collection, (Ḳ,) of tangled, confused, or dense, trees, or shrubs: (Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ:) or it is of reeds, or canes: (Ṣ:) or a [place such as is termed] مَغِيض of water collected together, in which, in consequence thereof, trees grow: (Ṣ in art. غيض:) [or] it signifies also a bed, or place of growth, of canes or reeds: (Mgh:) the pl. is أَجَمَاتٌ and أُجُمٌ (Ṣ, M, Ḳ) and أُجْمٌ (M, Ḳ) andأَجَمٌ↓, (Ṣ, M, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) [or rather this last is a coll. gen. n., of which أَجَمَةٌ is the n. un.,] and إِجَامٌ (Ṣ, M, Ḳ) and [pl. of pauc.] آجَامٌ, (Ṣ, M, Mgh, Ḳ,) or the last but one is pl. of أَجَمٌ, (M,) and so is the last.
