> (KGT 47):  In addition to these general terms, there are a number of specific words relating to specific types of battle or engagement.  First of all, there is a set of verbs that can each be translated "clash with, encounter, engage", and the like, but these translations do not make the differences between the words clear. 
> They are differentiated by degree, ranging from something like struggle in a minor skirmish to engage in a major melee.  Arranged in ascending order of ferocity, they are: {Qor, tlhaS, vay, lul, Hargh}.  If Klingons engaged in shadowboxing, {Qor} might be appropriately applied, while {Hargh} would be reserved only for situations approaching Armageddon.
