Kilijjati, (med-pass. of kilid=Sk. klid, to be wet. prob. = śliṣ to stick to, and confounded with svid, cp. also kelana & khela. The meaning “to get wet, to be soiled” only in pp. kilinna.—The Dhtm (199), however, explains k. by parideva lament, to be in trouble, which is not quite in harmony with the meaning; it is more likely that in P. we have a confusion between klid & kliś in a meaning which differs from Sk. ) to become heated, to get into a state of inflammation, to fester (of wounds) Vin. I, 205 (vaṇo kilijjittha festered); Sn. 671 (gloss for kilissati, explained at SnA 481 by pūti hoti).—pp. kilinna. See also ukkiledeti (to clean out a stain, to “disinfect”). (Page 216)
