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.

It means that something is a "close call". {tey yay} means the victory was
decided at the last minute or almost wasn't.
