Klingon word: naQ 'er
Part of speech: noun
Definition: brush devil (a Klingon animal)
Source: qep'a' 24 [2017]

(qurgh, qep'a' 24 New Words, 7/29/2017):   Presumably this is a type of {'er}. "Brush devil" is not a direct translation of {naQ 'er}, and the Klingon words {naQ} and {'er} have nothing to do with brushes or devils. The Federation Standard name was an invention of, probably, the first Federation Standard speaker who saw one of these things and reported about it.
