Source: November 2016 email to Lieven

(Lieven, 11/25/2016):  To conjure or to cast a spell, which is what wizards do, is {reS}.  So a wizard or sorcerer can also be called a {reSwI'}.  A spell, in this sense, is {tlheH}.  One can say either {tlheH reS} or just {reS} alone for "he/she casts a spell."  Maltz wasn't sure if there is anything besides {tlheH} that can be the object of {reS}, since Maltz isn't a {'IDnar pIn'a'}, but maybe there is.


'IDnar  		magic,  wizardry (n) 
  'IDnar lIlwI'  	  magician (n)
  'IDnar pIn'a'  	  wizard,  sorcerer (n)

mIn yuqwI' 	(stage) magician (n)

Ca'Non Master of the Klingons
