Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 לַ֫עַג noun [masculine] mocking, derision, (barbarous) stammering; — absolute ׳ל Job 34:7 2t. + Psalm 123:4 (׳הַלᵑ0 construct with article — so Kö Synt. § 303 e — but probably insert לְ following Hup Now Bae, compare also Ges§ 127g), + Ezekiel 23:32 (but strike out ᵐ5 B Hi Co Berthol), + Ezekiel 36:4 (where Co reads בלע, but less probably, compare Berthol); suffix לַעְגָּם Hosea 7:16 (see below) plural construct לַעֲגֵי Isaiah 28:12 (see below); —

1. a. mocking, derision, Psalm 123:4 ("" בוז); so apparently with suffix as Genitive object Hosea 7:16 (but very dubious, probably corrupt, compare We Now); nearly = blasphemy Job 34:7.

b. = object of derision Psalm 44:14 = Psalm 79:4 ("" חֶרְמָּה, קֶלֶס); so also Ezekiel 23:32 ("" צחק; si vera lectio, see above), Ezekiel 36:4.

2 stammerings (of barbarous language), שָׂפָה׳ל Isaiah 28:11 ("" לָשׁוֺןאַחֶרֶת; so Ew Brd Di Hup-Now Psalm 35:16, De and others below לָעֵג); but Gr Monatsschr. 1884,45 reads עלגי, √ עלג.
