Thank you Lieven for sharing the new words :)
I'd like to ask one quick question though:
[ngoy'] is also listed as meaning "be responsible" and the boQwI' gives us an example from TKW p155
vangDI' tlhIngan SuvwI' ngoy' qorDu'Daj, vangDI' qorDu'Daj ngoy' tlhIngan SuvwI'
What's the difference between [rang] and [ngoy'] in meaning and usage? 
Thanks in advance!

Maltz has answered some of my questions while watching Discovery which I 
don't want to keep secret from you any longer. I'm sending them in 
individual messages to keep the subject line separated.

To talk about "growing plants" (i.e. plant them and making them grow), 
Okrand suggested to use {wIj} "farm". I asked for {chep}, but he said 
that {chep} does not work with plants.

When I asked for a phrase like "you are responsible for his actions" or 
"you are responsible for [someting]". Maltz gave use the verb {rang} "be 
responsible for".

The word for "volcano" is {qulHuD}. No space.
