Do we have a sense of what the difference is between the meanings of
{ghIS} and {nogh}? In English, "wiggle" or "squirm" does accurately
describe what a bowl of {qagh} would do, and it would be a little bit
strange (but still basically correct) to use "writhe". In my experience,
"writhe" usually describes people who are in pain, though I guess you
might see it in other contexts.
