Indeed, my first choice would be {'Irgh}. But can we be certain that we can
use it for adults, and out of a school setting ?

As far as {tlha'} is concerned, there is something which has troubled me
with it in the past, but I forgot to ask about it then..

{tlha'} is given as "chase, follow". In english, does the verb "chase" have
a negative connotation ? Can I chase someone for a good reason too ? Or is
it neutral, and the reason of the chase defines whether it is used for
good, or bad ?
