Klingon Word of the Day for Tuesday, November 26, 2019

Klingon word: vI'Hop
Part of speech: noun
Definition: indirect object
Source: qep'a' 26 [2019]

AFAIK never used in a sentence.

'ovmay 		direct object (n) (qep'a' 2019)
SeSor 		subject (n) (qep'a' 2019)

Anyone see a pun in these new grammar words?  The only one I can work out is, maybe, {vI'} "sharpshooting, marksmanship, aim" + {Hop} "be remote, far" -- far/remote aim, i.e. beyond the direct object??

Before the qep'a', {DoS} "target" was occasionally used, faute de mieux, for this here on the Mailing List.

mu’tlhegh 	sentence (n)
pab buv 	part of speech (n)
DIp  		noun (n)
wot 		verb (n)
chuvmey	leftovers (i.e. not a verb or noun) (n)
