Klingon word: Haj
Part of speech: verb
Definition: dread

AFAIK never used in canon.

(Lieven < MO, 2/02 & 05/2018):  Maltz says he knows no word for fear. Maltz is one tough dude. He thinks using {ghIj} can work, however. Maltz knows the Federation Standard word "fear". He doesn't know a Klingon equivalent. It's one of those cases where one language has a word for something but another language doesn't. That doesn't mean you can't talk about it or express the same idea - it's just that you do it a different way.

ghIj 	scare (v)
lIm 	panic (v)
-vIp 	afraid (V2 suffix)
