Klingon word: taqmoH
Part of speech: verb
Definition: scar
Source: qep'a' 24 [2017]

 (qep'a' 24 New Words):  So if you have a scar that you got in a fight, that could be either a {mIvwa'} or a {SanDIy}. If you don't know whether someone's scar resulted from a wound or a disease, it's probably safest to go with {mIvwa'}. If the person's scar is actually a {SanDIy}, he/she will, under most circumstances, clarify this for you. If it's a {roptoj}, he/she may let the "misdiagnosis" slide since, as we all know, {ropchoHbe' tlhInganpu'}."
