(qurgh, 8/18/2016):  {tlhom} and {chum} were new words created because one of the new Friends of Maltz specifically asked for a way to talk about the visual experience of sunrise and sunset. Those phrases were then added to the dictionary as the specific way Klingons talk about those experiences.

choS 			twilight, evening (n)
jajlo'  		dawn (n)
tlhom 		dusk (n)
tlhom chum 	sunset (n)

chum  		be colorful (v)
