[Meaning he/she/it] fears.[1]
Properly o)rrwdei=n [refers] to irrational animals' fear. It is formed from indicating fear by shaking the tail [ou)ra/]; or from hiding the genitals with this part in the condition of fear; or because the buttocks [o)/rros][2] of those who are afraid are the first [part] to sweat. The [verb] o)rrwdei=n[3] [comes] from o)/rros, which is the part between the buttocks of a pigeon. For the part tends to tremble.[4]

[1] Likewise in other lexica; references at Photius omicron523. The headword -- present indicative active, third person singular, of this verb -- must be quoted from somewhere.
[2] The manuscripts here read o(/ros 'boundary' but the editio princeps of Demetrius Chalcocondyles (1499) corrected it to o)/rros.
[3] The manuscripts read fobei=sqai 'to fear', which the editio princeps corrected to o)rrwdei=n.
[4] From a scholion on Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 122, where o)rrwdw= occurs; cf. scholion on Knights 126, where o)rrwdw=n occurs.
