More trivia:
{chuS'ugh}  a "type of musical instrument" -- from {chuS} "be noisy" and {'ugh} "be heavy" -- was coined in the 1989 pro-novel _Power Hungry_ apparently with Okrand's blessing, who added it to the 1992 TKD Addendum. Geordi is quoted as saying it loosely translates as "a heavy grouping" and is described as sounding like a forty-foot sheep being jabbed with an electric prod.
