kgt p.91:
"The verb {HaH}, though once restricted to this form of food
preparation, is now often used in the more general sense of "soak,
drench." It is frequently heard in the reflexive form ({HaH'egh,}
"soak oneself") in reference to such activities as drinking a great
deal, which has positive connotations, and bathing, an occasional
undertaking with negative connotations"
