Klingon Word of the Day for Sunday, August 27, 2017

Klingon word: tey
Part of speech: verb
Definition: be uncomfortable, be close
Source: qep'a' 24
My autotranslater's assembled Klingon-English dictionary says:

tev N prize
tey V scrape=
teywI' N file(tool)=

In the qep'a' 24 definition, does "close" mean merely "near to", or does it have an American English meaning which I as a British English speaker in England have not heard of?
I am familiar with weather being described as "close" when the air is as stuffy outdoors as indoors.
