Klingon word: taq

Part of speech: verb

Definition: be scarred

Source: qep'a' 24 [217]



taqmoH               scar (v) (qep'a' 2017)

pe'                        cut (n)

Haq                       perform surgery (on) (v)

QID                       wound (v)

mIvwa'                scar (result of a wound, regardless of how the wound occurred) (n)

roptoj                  scar (result of some sort of disease, infection, etc.) (n)

SanDIy                 scar (result of a wound received in the course of fighting/battling) (n)

"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'."
