AFAIK never used yet in a sentence.  (Lieven, have you used it in a subtitle?)

jItuj'ep ngutlh  
mummification glyph (n) (qep'a' 2017; N.B. the resurrected Spock identified a Klingon Mummification Glyph in ST5)

"I'm hot" {jItuj} + "ep" = Imhotep (cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imhotep )

Heghpu'wI' 	dead (person) (n) (PB)
