דּוּכִיפַת fem. Leviticus 11:19; Deuteronomy 14:18, some unclean bird; according to the LXX., Vulg., Saad., the hoopoe; according to the Targ. gallus montanus, mountain cock [“Tetrao urogallus”]; which latter explanation may be confirmed by a comparison with דּוּ=ذو lord [or “דּוּךְ=ديك cock”], and כִּיפַת=Ch. כֵּיפָא a rock; compare Bochart, Hieroz. vol. ii. page 346. No difficulty need be made as to the termination ־ַת for ־ָה, as to which see Lehrg. page 467. Jo. Simonis, in defending the signification of hoopoe, less aptly supposes דּוּכִיפַת to be compounded of דּוּךְ=دِيكُ a cock, and פַּת, to which he ascribes the idea of dung, comparing فتأ to void dung.
