Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יַעֲנָה f. of the preceding (as to the form compare יָעֵל fem. יַעֲלָה, not יְעֵלָה), everywhere joined with בַּת: בַּת־הַיַּעֲנָה the daughter of the female ostrich, i.e. the female ostrich herself; according to Bochart, Hieroz. ii. 230, opp. to תַּחְמָס the male ostrich, Levit. 11:16 Deuteronomy 14:15. In the plural, however, בְּנוֹת יַעֲנָה is, without doubt, used for either sex, Isaiah 13:21, 34:13 Micah 1:8; Job 30:29 (in these passages they are said to inhabit the deserts, and to utter a doleful cry). The Arabs, at least, call an ostrich without any distinction of sex نَعَامُ (a word which I judge kindred to the Hebrew), نَعَامَةُ, يِنْتُ نَعَامَةً. Others have badly rendered יַעֲנָה an owl, from עָנָה to cry out (?) in opposition to the context and the authority of the ancient interpreters.
