[tlhIngan Hol] "rookie" vs "veteran"

Maybe instead of using {bam}, use the related word {DIgh}, perhaps
{DIghpu'wI'} "one who has dealt with (something)."
I'd also be inclined to pair {chu'chu'wI'} (one who is
clearly/perfectly new) for a newbie with {ta'ta'wI'} (one who has
deliberately accomplished) for an old pro, and that covers about the
same territory as rookie/veteran.
