(qurgh, 7/22/2016):  Maltz said this is not a Klingon thing, but he's seen human babies use these

(MO interviewed by Lieven, 11/12/2013):  So the cork is the "thing which does close the hole (of the bottle)", {qorgh} is to "stop up, to fill a hole". You can stop up a hole, but not fill it in with dirt. That would be {teb}.  {qorgh} is to stop up an opening somehow. It's like filling in, and not put stuff inside. So the word for the cork is a {qorghwI'}.
