Klingon word: Suy'
Part of speech: noun
Definition: *shooy*, type of animal
Source: KGT

Suy' SoH 
You are a *shooy*.  (KGT )

(KGT 196):  Calling someone a {Suy'} is quite derogatory, comparable to using the word "pig" in Federation Standard. Mistakenly calling someone a {Suy} (merchant) when the intent is to be insulting and call him or her a {Suy'} will have the effect of making the speaker appear to be foolish and, therefore, weak and hardly in a position to be ridiculing someone else.

PUN: "suet" or "soo-eey!" (the classic pig-call in English)

"Speak Klingon boldly; do not be meek or hesitant." (CK)  But enunciate clearly!
