By George, I think you’ve got it!   Like me, Okrand must be a fan of British television -- though I always assumed that to “grass” meant informing specifically to the police, not tattling on ones mates to the teacher or the boss.  (That tells you the type of shows I tend to watch.)

In the UK there is slang "to grass on someone", which means to reveal information that someone doesn't want revealed, often to a person in authority. During my school days, another kid would often be branded as a traitor if they known to "grass" on others.

N.B. Do not confuse with the verb {magh} "indicate, reveal" or the new noun {magh} "Klingon plant resembling grass".
