Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

צְפַרְדֵּעַ masc. a frog, Exod. 7:27, 28 8:1, seq. Collect. frogs, Exodus 8:2 where (as is usual with collectives) it is joined with a fem. This quinqueliteral appears to be blended of the verb צָפַר No. 12, to dance, to leap; and رِدَاعُ a marsh; as if leaping in a marsh; and not, as some have thought of late, from the root צָפר No.I.3, since the chirping of birds cannot be aptly applied to frogs. From this fuller form have arisen, in Arab. and Syr., the more contracted quadriliterals ضَفْدَعُ and ܙܘܽܪܕܥܐܳ a frog.
