[tlhIngan Hol] Transitivity of qID

AFAIK there are no examples of the verb {qID} in canon, either transitive or intransitive.  I agree with SuStel that it’s likely an error in boQwI’, perhaps based on the gloss “make a joke,  tell a joke” in KGT.

In boQwI’, {qID} is marked as a transitive verb. I assumed that the object of the qID would logically be the subject of the joke; but after a discussion on the KLI Discord, we could not find any sourcing for transitive qID, and the gloss does not directly imply an object.

Can anyone confirm that qID takes an object and what the object might be?

I believe there is no evidence supporting the idea that qID takes an object. I believe this to be an error in boQwI'.
