> > Klingon word: wornagh
> > Part of speech: noun
> > Definition: *warnog*, Klingon ale
> (KGT 95):  ... many native Klingon alcoholic drinks have names that do not
> contain the word {HIq}. Among these are {wornagh} ("warnog"), a kind of ale
> (KGT 98f):  Unless specified further, {HIq HIvje'} ("liquor glass")
> usually means a tankard or stein for beer or ale. A {bal} is any bottle or
> jug used to store liquid... Ale is often stored in a large vat ({qegh})
> rather than in a {bal}.

> Christmas" and "Happy New Year". He thought they were silly things to say
> (and, of course, there are no traditional Klingon ways to say these things)
> ... He also liked my sister-in-law's suggestion: {wornagh yItlhutlh!}
> The clone of Kahless was exposed because he could not detect the
> difference between real and replicated *warnog*. (TNG "Rightful Heir")
> General Martok often enjoyed *warnog* aboard the IKS Rotarran to keep him
> warm. (DS9 "Sons and Daughters")
