Klingon word: pargh
Part of speech: verb
Definition: be synthetic, artificial

AFAIK it's only been used in the (non-canon) Discovery episode "Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum":

  DaHjaj Soj pargh wISopnISbe'ba', Sogh. 
  There will be no synthetic protein rations tonight, Lieutenant. (DSC)

>From the same episode we have {but} "be natural" (also confirmed at qepHom 2017):

  Dat butbogh Dochmey, yInbogh qa' je jemlaH vay'. 
  Everywhere you go, you can feel the symbiosis between nature and the living spirit.
