مُو

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Ancient Greek μῆον (mêon).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

مُو (m

  1. meu, baldmoney (Meum athamanticum)
    Synonym: شِبِتّ بَرِّيّ(šibitt barriyy)

Usage notes[edit]

Presumably obsolete, as the range of the plant ends southwards to the East in Bulgaria and to the West in Al-Andalus, apocryphically Morocco, and as a learned borrowing only used in medieval pharmacology, found in authors like the Cordoban Maimonides. It is also usually called inexactly شِبِتّ(šibitt, dill).

    • 10th/11th century, attributed to Abū-Sa'īd Abul-Khayr and Avicenna, [2]:
      دل گرچه در این بادیه بسیار شتافت
      یک موی ندانست ولی موی شکافت
      اندر دل من هزار خورشید بتافت
      آخر به کمال ذره‌ای راه نیافت
      dil garči dar īn bādiya bisyār šitāft
      yak mōy nadānist walī mōy šikāft
      andar dil-i man hazār xuršēd bitāft
      āxar ba kamāl zarra-ē rāh nayāft
      Although [this] heart hastened in this desert so much,
      A hair was not aware, but passed through hairs.
      A thousand of suns shined inside my heart
      At the end, it did not reach the smallest bit of excellence.
