_______________________________________________

  qamDu'wIjDaq 
  at my feet (TKD)

  my child's feet (TKD)

  qamlIj vIghov 
  I recognize your foot. (KGT)

  qamDu'chaj bIngDaq letchoH lam nagh rur 
  The sand beneath their feet turned hard as rock. (PB)

[N.B. for "sand" we now have the noun {Do'ol} (qep'a' 2018 < TLP).]

(HQ 10.2:10):  A foot has {vagh yaDDu'} five toes, and each toe has two words, a noun and a verb, associated with it. Klingon toes have more dexterity than human toes, though not as much as Klingon or human fingers.
