Right, which is why I'm not as concerned about that as
*{Qob/ghob/ghab-'etlh}. We basically know that {Hov lat} and {SoS taj} are
correct, whether o not there also happens to be a lexicalised form
*{Hovlat} or *{SoStaj}. But it's annoying that we don't know the name of a
Klingon weapon. It's also annoying that we can't easily run the Klingon CD
game to look at what the {nuH bey'} looks like any more.

(Lieven will probably reply to this telling me that pictures of everything
from KCD is on the KlingonWiki somewhere, but I couldn't find any.)
