khaṭṭā (खट्टा).—m The joints of the loins; the small of the back; the lumbar vertebræ or region. Used only with reference to pain or stiffness there from carrying a heavy load, from long sitting and writing &c. Note. This sense is of that large class to which popular misapplication in all languages gives rise; and of which, although general usage confers ample definiteness, the origin or exact connection with the primitive meaning is become too obscure for ascertainment or conjecture. The following sense is a figurative variation of it. Haughty stiffness; opinionativeness; high notion of one's own power or importance. Ex. myāṃ tyācā khaṭṭā mōḍalā I have bowed his stiff-back for him. The verbs in construction are mōḍa, mōkaḷā kara, tōḍa, jirava, utara, purava, and the application, with suitable modification of this sense of Stiffness, sturdy endurance, fierceness, forcefulness, arrogated dominancy or prevalence, is unto limbs and members, bodily diseases or affections, and physical agencies and existencies, with all the amplitude of the liveliest and most resolute imagination. Ex. kamarēcā-pāṭhīcā-mānēcā-maṇagaṭācā- hātāpāyācā-tāpācā-hiṃvācā-galāṇḍācā-vāīcā- pāvasācā-vāṛyācā-unhācā-paṭakīcā-paḍaśācā-khaṭṭā mōḍalā-mōkaḷā jhālā-ḍhilā jhālā &c.
