{tera'ngan 'oynot} or {tera'ngan porgh}, I'd think.

I don't know exactly why or how, I got the impression that {porgh} is only to be used for humanoids.

Perhaps the word {'oynot} led me to believe that since it is to be used in reference to "animal flesh", then {porgh} is to be used solely for humanoids.

Anyway, there is another thing which came to my mind right now..

How would describe "human flesh" ? Would you accept {Human 'oynot} ?

Except for {gham} and {ghIv} (are there any other exceptions?), analogous animal and humanoid body parts are named alike, so why not the whole {porgh}? Unless Maltz has something to say on the matter...
