Klingon Word of the Day for Saturday, November 23, 2019

Klingon word: mIw
Part of speech: noun
Definition: recipe, formula (procedure, process)
Source: qep'a' 26 [2019]

(qep’a’ 2019):  This is generally used for this [i.e. recipe, formula], but step-by-step instructions can also be referred to as {HIl'aD}. The word for ingredient is {qurme'}, so if a "formula" is the list of the ingredients of something (like a secret formula for the special sauce on a Big Mac), that's {qurme'mey}.

When you aim the painstik, you accomplish the first step, but when you turn the
 painstik on, you accomplish the zeroth step. KGT

(KGT 177): The implication here is that activating the painstik must be done before beginning the ritualistic part of the ceremony." 

'oy'naQ Dachu'Ha'DI' mIw HochDIch Data' 
When you turn the painstik off, you accomplish the last step. KGT
