Klingon Word of the Day for Saturday, August 05, 2017

Klingon word: cheq
Part of speech: verb
Definition: tornado
Source: qep\'a\' 24 [2017]

One of the brand-new weather verbs.

IIRC "storm like a tornado" is another translation given.

(qurgh < MO, qep'a' 2017):  You can also say {ver SuS'a'} "a tornado happens" (literally: "the big wind spirals").  {ver SuS} (or {ver SuSHom}) would most likely refer to a whirlwind.

jev 		storm (v)
vung 		storm like a hurricane/cyclone (v)
ver  		be spiral;  be dizzy (v)
vIH 		be in motion (v)

SuS  		wind,  breeze (n)
SuS'a'  		strong wind (n)
SuSHom  	wisp of air (n)
rewve' 		air (everyday word) (n)
muD 		atmosphere (n)

bImaw''a'?  Duvuv SuS DaneH'a'? 
Are you crazy?  Do you want the wind to respect you?
(i.e. What's with you? Are you an idiot?)   (KGT 122)
