  Doq 'ej Qaj wuS rur 
  be orange/red and resemble kradge lips (st.k)

(st. klingon 2/1998):  To get even more specific (to be able to refer to different kinds of browns) would involve comparisons. For example: {Doq 'ej Qaj wuS rur} "be orange/red and resemble kradge lips". The lips of the kradge are presumably a particular shade of brown.

  Qaj tlhuQ 
  kradge tail  (KGT)

(KGT 94):  If a dish with a standard preparation technique (a{nay' motlh}, "usual dish") is being offered, asking how it is to be prepared is a demonstration of cultural ignorance. Thus, in addition to pipius claw, questions about {bIreQtagh} (bregit lung), {targh tIq} (heart of targ), {raHta'} (racht), {tlhImqaH} (zilm'kach), and {Qaj tlhuQ) (kradge tail) should be avoided.
