To Lash. v.n. To ply the whip.
They lash aloud, each other they provoke,
And lend their little souls at every stroke. Dryden's Æn.
Gentle or sharp, according to thy choice,
To laugh at follies, or to lash at vice. Dryden's Persius.
Wheels clash with wheels, and bar the narrow street;
The lashing whip resounds. Gay's Trivia.
