  • The meaning is: a torrent of rain is descending. This expression was first attested as "polecat and dog" where "polecat an_" is cognate with Hebrew maBooL GeSHeM (a torrent of rain) with an ancient T-sound for the shin. Dog, OE docga, is the verb ... cognate with shin-kuf-aiyin (to descend), with a D/T-sound for the shin and an ancient G-sound, as in 3aZa = Gaza, for the aiyin.
