For those preferring "quotable facts", there's a summary of the video 
interview at the Klingon Language Wiki:


{'an} a verb meaning to be a waste as in That's a waste.

"But it's not like 'I waste the Coca Cola'; you need -moH for that." 
[...] "I sent him out there knowing he's not going to come back = I 
sacrificed him. [it's with -moH] because I caused him to be a waste, I 
caused that to be 'wasteful'."
