(De'vID < MO, 2/17/2018):  {pab buv} is good for "part of speech". 

pab  		grammar (n)
buv  		classification (n)

(TKD p.51) :  By far the bulk of Klingon words are nouns and verbs.  There are a few others which, probably as an expedient, Klingon grammarians lump together in a group called {chuvmey} "leftovers".  It is possible to classify the{ chuvmey} somewhat.

 (Captain Krankor, "'Iv and nuq as Pronouns", "The Grammarian's Desk", HQ [issue?]: p.24-25):  Remember, categories such as pronoun, question word, adverbial, and the like are convenient classification added by Terran scholars. Klingon grammarians classify all such words as {chuvmey}, leftovers.
