I'm not sure it was mentioned here, so sorry for double message.

In a Facebook post of November 16, Robyn Stewart told the story how
Okrand revealed the word for "tangerine", an orange like fruit.

     DaHjaj po tera' na'ran vISoplI' 'ach wIb 'oH. jIjatlh, wIbmo' tera'
na'ranvam, tera' na'ran wIb 'oHlaw' 'ach tera' na'ran wIb 'oHbe'.

     jatlh marq, tera' na'ran 'oHbe'. tanje'rIn 'oH. (qaStaHvIS tup
{na'ranHom} qel 'ach mu' {tanje'rIn} wIv).

(TFW when Klingons use a more precise vocabulary set for Earth fruits
than I, a native-born Terran, do.)

     SKI: new Klingon word: tanje'rIn - the Earth fruit that Qov calls
an orange, but the kind that peels easily and breaks into segments
without getting juice on your fingers. (Facebook Post of Nov 16, 2019)
