Unfortunately, I can't find the Facebook post where the information came
from. According to my notes, both the spelling of {jaqtala'} and a
clarification on {mIS} came from comments on a Facebook thread by
participants at qep'a' 2017. I made a commit on github
<https://github.com/De7vID/klingon-assistant/pull/271/commits/1e7d56cd7e74e7954ff90a08fad540baed27c26a>
to the {boQwI'} database with those two changes together, so I must have
seen them both fairly close together.

The clarification for {mIS} was that it referred specifically to mental
confusion, as opposed to a physical mixing-up of things, and is from this
thread
<https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156356897295828&set=oa.10156572532083986&type=3&theater>
.

However, I'm unable to find any reference to {jaqtala'} in that album,
though Facebook's search function apparently doesn't work on all comments.
Presumably, it's buried in some thread from around that time on one of the
Facebook Klingon groups.
